HENDRY COUNTY, Fla. (WBBH) - After ten months of rehabilitation, Florida Fish and Wildlife biologists released an injured panther kitten back into the wild Monday.

FWC believes the 9-month-old kitten was hit by a car. When she was found in May she had a broken hind leg.

The endangered animal spent the past 10 months on a conservation while she healed.

Monday evening, after a little hesitation, she darted into 750,000 acres of southeast Hendry County.
