    Endangered Species v. Humans. Is one more important? Does it have to be a battle? We were watching the Florida Panther go extinct in the 1990s. With less than 30 individuals left, inbreeding became a problem. Eight female Texas Cougars were introduced to strengthen genetic diversity. It has been successful according to panther supporters. But, what about cattle ranchers. There have been more depredations of cattle than ever before. There have also been more panther road-kills by humans. This film explores the divergent, yet common perspectives of a cattle rancher and a wildlife biologist. This short film sets up the questions. I will continue to cover this topic over the coming year to illustrate what has been done, what needs to be done, what potential solutions exist for this cougar that used to have a larger range in the southeast, and lessons learned compared to the Red Wolf Restoration. Thank you to: Liesa Priddy - Interviewed and provided 2 photos of her cracker cattle. Larry Richardson - Interviewed and was photographer of the panther showed during discussion of Texas Cougars and genetic diversity. Naples Zoo

            Endangered Species v. Humans. Is one more important? The plight of the Florida Panther has been an interesting ride. The species was going extinct in the 1990s. With only 20 to 50 individuals left, inbreeding became a problem. Eight female Texas Cougars were introduced to strengthen genetic diversity. It has been successful to panther supporters. But, what about people. There have been more depredations of cattle than ever before. There have also been more panther roadkills. This film explores the divergent and common perspectives of a cattle rancher and a wildlife biologist.

                    Shortly after a beautiful outdoor wedding ceremony in Jackson Hole, WY for my dear friends Joel Handschin and Melanie Parrish, an unexpected thing happened. Local ranchers drove 65 horses from one pasture to another, right in front of where we were standing. They were magnificent.
