ARROYO CITY, Texas (AP) - A liquefied natural gas company has donated $40,000 to help buy GPS tracking collars and other devices to monitor endangered ocelots in South Texas.

Annova LNG announced the funding, through its majority owner Exelon Generation, in association with the Caesar Kleberg Wildlife Institute at Texas A&M; University-Kingsville.

The donation was offered following last week’s death of an endangered ocelot.

Investigators believe the ocelot was struck Dec. 14 by a vehicle traveling near Arroyo City. The area is near the Laguna Atascosa (a-tuhs-KOH’-suh) Wildlife Refuge, home to about a dozen of the endangered cats.

Work continues to building passageways under some nearby roads for use by ocelots.
