When Florida state highway workers reported an endangered Florida panther trapped on the wrong side of a highway fence to FWC, a team effort resulted in a panther win.

An FWC officer’s body camera recorded everything.

Watch as a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service biologist, FWC Officer Rubenstein and a helpful motorist work to slowly encourage the wild cat to safety.
