Animals Are Walking Strangely

Is this another weird adaptation?

Sometimes animal behaviors that seem odd really aren't. Take the fact that we thought the "alpha wolf" mentality was a real thing, when it turns out that wolves only behave that way when thrown together in captivity and not in the wild with their families. But this new behavior exhibited by Florida panthers and bobcats is pretty weird.

The animals are walking in a strange manner, with difficulty moving their hind legs. It looks like a terrible neurological development unique to three separate counties, which makes you wonder if they're being poisoned, exposed to pesticide or otherwise harmed. Given that it's not affecting all of the animals but enough to be a concern, it might also be a disease among them.

What do you think is causing this weird behavior? Share your thoughts in the chat.
