The FL panther sighting reminded me of a joke I heard years ago...
A FL Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officer came upon a man in a clearing in the middle of the FL Everglades.
The guy had a spit going over a fire, and was roasting the carcass of a FL panther on it.
The FWC officer went nuts. The officer screamed and yelled at the guy, planted him face down in the sand and cuffed him.
Eventually, the officer calmed down and the 'perp' was able to explain what had happened.
"I was driving along, and hit this panther and killed it. Since it was already dead, and I was curious what FL panther tasted like, I decided to roast it and see."
Well, after LOTS of apologizing, the FWC officer unshackled him, and told him, "If I ever even SEE you around here again, let alone messing with our protected wildlife, I will put you UNDER the jail."
The officer turned to walk off, stopped and turned, then asked, "By the way, how did that FL panther taste?"
The guy responded, "Not bad. It was kind of a cross between a Bald Eagle and a Manatee."
