Can't we all just get along?

A motorcyclist injured when he collided with a Florida Panther (only 160 left in the wild) is suing the state of Florida. Kenneth Nolan hit the panther on a highway in the Big Cypress National Preserve and claims that a roadside 'animal detection system' failed to alert him. "The product is intended to protect not only humans but panthers", said Nolan's attorney. "In this case it did neither."

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, which is charged with monitoring the population, has found 15 dead panthers this year so far putting 2012 on track to be the deadliest year yet for panthers.
