I wonder if it spreads to people. Perhaps that could explain Florida lunacy.

A mysterious neurological disease is afflicting endangered Florida panthers
Douglas Main, 4 hrs ago

Everything Mark Harmon Has Said About Leaving 'NCIS'
Once ranging throughout the U.S. Southeast, Florida panthers nearly went extinct due to widespread hunting. By the 1970s there were fewer than 20 left. Though the endangered cats have rebounded significantly in the last couple decades, with a total population around 200, their future remains tenuous.

Once ranging throughout the U.S. Southeast, Florida panthers nearly went extinct due to widespread hunting. By the 1970s there were fewer than 20 left. Though the endangered cats have rebounded significantly in the last couple decades, with a total population around 200, their future remains tenuous. aph by Carlton Ward Jr. Florida panther kittens that have been rescued from the wild receive examinations and vaccinations at Zoo Tampa by Zoo Tampa Veterinarian Dr Lauren Smith. This kitten and its sibling made full recoveries but were too young to be returned to the wild without a mother. Now named Pepper and Cypress, the two young panthers live at White Oak Conservation near Jacksonville.

That’s why scientists are concerned about a newly discovered neurological disease that causes limb weakness, and in severe cases, partial paralysis, in Florida panthers and bobcats. Affected animals often have trouble walking, which can lead to starvation and death. Known as feline leukomyelopathy (FLM), the disease has been confirmed in three panthers but has likely afflicted at least 19 panthers and 18 bobcats throughout the state since spring 2017.

What’s causing the disease is unknown, says Darrell Land, panther team leader for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

No. Florida's Lunacy Disease is caused by outbreaks of "Back In" disease which then multiplies and compounds and eventually manifests itself as the dreaded Lunacy Disease.

"Back In" disease - "Back in [fill in your previous state] we used to do it this way." Transplants from New Yawk were the primary culprits. :ROFLMAO:

There are only 200 FL panthers?!? I thought their numbers were in the thousands.
