Bear hunting has been banned in Florida since 1994, however the ban was recently lifted and 207 bears were killed in a single day. The reason for the lift is supposedly to control the bear population. However, the last time a statewide count was taken

I thought the Florida bear hunt had officially closed on the 2nd day?

Signed & shared on FB, thank you for posting Cal. When I think of the magnitude of these senseless killings, it makes me so angry!! And to know that alot of the bears killed were lactating females, leaving behind so many cubs, to now have to fend for themselves is despiicable..And after a twenty year ban...what for???? Seems to me it is just a free for all for hunters to go & get themselves a bear. Saddened & livid all at the same time!! :(

As long as we have a governor who is anti-environment and against animal conservation, the bear hunt will be a new tradition. It is sickening!!

Action completed....such ignorant and apathetic decision-making by the FWCC (Florida Wildlife "Culling" Commission) who made money off of this slaughter, Governor Rick Scott, the court judge, and all the self-serving individuals involved who supported this senseless and barbaric slaughter of the Florida Black Bear.....and one note... 75 percent of the people in Florida were against it...but it simply didn't matter to them. So disturbing and unethical. Thanks Cal!

And, also FWCC is reviewing this year's slaughter to make the next slaughter more politically correct....yes, they plan to continue next year ...and, frankly, we just cannot allow this to happen ever again.

Such madness: about 3,100 bears live in the state and 3,778 hunting permits were sold.That is not culling to control the population, that is extermination!

And Governor Rick Scott, who authorized this Mass Bear Slaughter, wanted to be RETHUGLICAN Candidate for President of the U.S.A.....
Rethuglicans don't seem to be really into "Compassion", do they... or even Common Sense...

Huckabee's son tortured a dog to death while counselor at a Boy Scout Camp, for which he was fired;
Trump's sons hunt and kill Big Game in Africa that they proudly display;
then there's Romney and his dog strapped on top of his car...
G.W. Bush as a young lad put firecrackers into frogs' mouths, for "fun", exploding them.... all one kind of thing...
