Pages of History: Panther slain near Fort Dick

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, February 1945:

A full grown 7-foot male panther was killed last Wednesday night by Joe Gwerder, who had quite a thrilling experience with the varmint. 

Gwerder was traveling along the road leading down to the Ferguson ranch from Fort Dick section, at the time the incident occurred. 

It was about 11 p.m. when the varmint showed up out of the night, coming within the glare from the headlights of Gwerder’s car when he was about halfway down the Fort Dick lane. Not having a gun in the car, Gwerder went back home and secured his rifle to find the panther still on the road.
