An endangered Florida panther has been struck and killed by a vehicle.
It's the first panther death reported this year.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission says the remains of the 3-year-old male were collected last week on a state road in rural Hendry County.
Florida panthers once roamed the entire Southeast, but now their habitat mostly is confined to a small region of Florida along the Gulf of Mexico. Up to 230 Florida panthers remain in the wild.
