NAPLES, Fla. (FOX 13) - Residents in a Naples neighborhood are on-edge after surveillance cameras caught the moment a panther attacked and killed a family's cat in their driveway.
There is now a sign in Golden Gate Estates warning neighbors about panthers and other wild animals. *Some may find the following video disturbing.
The attack happened Sunday. The cat's owner says she just adopted River two months ago.
“I saw how she was and I saw she was in danger, that’s why I brought her home,” the owner, who did not want to be named, told WINK News. “The last thing that I want or expected was for her to have a bad ending.”
The Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission set up the sign at the entrance of the neighborhood after the attack was reported.
