The Associated Press reports that a nearly frozen, one-week-old panther kitten was rescued from a wildlife refuge in southwest Florida. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission noted in a news release that the kitten was rescued by biologists in mid-January.
FWC biologists and the Conservancy of Southwest Florida found the kitten while conducting research. The one-pound male kitten was suffering from hypothermia and was nonresponsive.
