Watch: Rehabilitated Florida panther released into wild

Biologists with the state's Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission returned a rehabilitated Florida panther to the wild on Monday.
The female panther, approximately 19 months old, was released on private property in southeast Hendry County, according to an FWC news release.

The release of the panther comes some 10 months after the panther kitten was struck by a vehicle in Collier County, leaving the panther with fractures in her right hind leg and rib as well as bruising around the lungs. The panther underwent surgery to mend the bone at Animal Specialty Hospital of Florida before being transported to White Oak Plantation in Yulee for further care, according to the release.
