NAPLES, Fla. -- State wildlife officials say a Florida panther was found dead on the Big Cypress Seminole Indian reservation in Hendry County.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission reports that a tracker found the animal Monday, apparently the victim of a fight with another panther. The carcass will be sent to Gainesville for a necropsy, and the remains will be deposited with the Florida Museum of Natural History.

A total of 13 wild panthers have been killed this year in Florida.
