I would worry more about them then the panthers. I'm guessing you might find panthers more toward the Everglades.

We have a cat that was a stray and we kind of adopted her. She stays outside due to our big inside dogs that don't like cats. It's been a couple of years now and no problems.
Good, I was concerned only b/c when I lived in CA everyone said don't worry, and then that girl was hiking and a mountain lion got her. Just didn't know if there had been any incidents. Yes, we have hawks here in Jax, and I've seen them come down for the little froo froo dogs in yards.
My dogs are 50 lbs and over. I wanted to fence in the yard, which is sort of an "enclosure" so that is why I was nervous! Thanks for the info!

Hey LewLew , something else to ponder . If you have fresh water ponds around the area , you will have alligator's . Animals straying too close to the ponds are a meal ticket . I guess we just have to respect the wildlife in their own envirement .

Yes, I'm well aware of those! Used to live in Tampa area. That's the reason for the fence...not only for my dogs, but kids. Both make nice appetisers for those gators. I do feel for the wildlife...trust me...that is why I don't wanto infringe too much on their territory. Wanted to see if there were incidents of them jumping out of the woods etc. for meals. If they are endanged, their food supply is also limited!
