It looks like the one was biting at the other's balls - I'm assuming that was two males fighting over territory. I've read that most male cats will kill each other and that mature males routinely kill juvenile males.
I wonder if using 2 cat's fighting sound would be a legitimate way to call in mature boars?
Very rare chance to see a fight like this.
That was a big boar that came in!
There’s no such thing as a Florida panther bud, those are cats from out west. I know the people who do the blood tests on the cats in Florida. Zero % Florida Panthers. Good thing about Florida rednecks is we practice SSS very well.
"Breeding the Florida panthers and Texas cougars would not be considered hybridization, since the two are subspecies of the same species, Felis concolor, which includes panthers, cougars, pumas and mountain lions. Florida panthers and Texas cougars ranged freely throughout the Southeast and bred with each other until the two populations were separated by development more than a hundred years ago. As a result, the new breeding effort would not call into question the legal standing of the Florida panther on the list of endangered species.
While the Florida panther once ranged throughout the Southeast, it is now confined to one relatively small area of south Florida wilderness. Because the panthers have large ranges and interact infrequently, it would be unlikely that the south Florida population would be adversely affected by a single factor, a natural disaster or disease, for example. If the panther is to flourish, however, most biologists believe that there should be several populations scattered throughout the Southeast. If one becomes too inbred, its gene pool could be invigorated by the introduction of panthers from another population."

“The Florida panther (Puma concolor) is one of the rarest large mammals in the United States. Historically, the panther was distributed from eastern Texas or western Louisiana and the lower Mississippi River Valley, east through the southeastern United States including all of Florida (Young and Goldman 1946). Although occasional sightings and signs were reported throughout the rural southeast between 1950 and 1980, the only confirmed panther population was found in south Florida (Anderson 1983). Geographic isolation of the Florida panther, combined with habitat loss, population decline and associated inbreeding, resulted in significant loss of genetic variability and decline in the overall health of the population. To restore genetic variability, eight female Texas panthers were released in strategic locations within south Florida in 1995. Due to the genetic augmentation, the population grew from less than 50 panthers in 1995 to the current population of 80-100. All offspring of the Texas panthers are considered to be Florida panthers. The panther is listed as endangered under both the Endangered Species Act and Florida law. Increased development into panther habitat has heightened the potential for human-panther interactions, thereby raising public safety awareness issues. Due to the panther’s potential for extinction, conflicts with humans raise issues that require careful consideration and action such that the intent and ability to conserve the species is unaltered while at the same time the safety of the public remains paramount.”
