NAPLES — State wildlife officers are on the scene this afternoon in North Naples where a vehicle struck a bobcat, which then dashed into the woods.

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officers said the call came in as a Florida panther being struck, but that it's a bobcat not a panther.

The animal was struck early this afternoon along Goodlette-Frank Road, about a half-mile south of Immokalee Road near an entrance to the Creekside business park.

Wildlife officers said they hope to catch the animal and take it to the Conservancy of Southwest Florida clinic for rehabilitation.
