    the Florida panthers existence. However, there are some very serious problems that have come about as a result of inbreeding. The Florida panther is now plagued by infertility, heart abnormalities, and infectious diseases. La Pierre states, “Florida panthers, which historically numbered in the thousands and roamed the Southeastern states, have been reduced to one population of 30 to 50 adults” (44). With numbers like these it is clear that action needs to be taken.
