GAZING wide-eyed into the camera, this adorable Florida panther kitten looks the picture of health and happiness. But just three weeks earlier it was facing a cold and lonely death, having been abandoned by its mother. Fortunately the week-old cub he was rescued by a team of biologists and is now on the road to a full recovery. The teams came from Conservancy of Southwest Florida and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. It was treated at the Animal Speciality Hospital of Florida in Naples, Florida.
