I know how very tired you must be of seeing and hearing this, but by this time tomorrow, it may all be over for our magnificent Florida Black Bears.
The meeting will be in Jacksonville
We all knew this, it has been talked about everywhere.
But the stories have been quite remiss on every channel, as to when and where, this meeting will actually take place.
Was/is this intentional to keep those of us who are outraged by this away?
The idea that it can and will, soon be OPEN season on our Bears is inconceivable.
One of the most beautiful and majestic beings to ever live in this state will, if this is passed and I am positive it will be, hunted down, shot and killed like any of the other wild animals here, that are already being murdered for SPORT.
The idea that I/we may soon have to drive past the gruesome scene on the side of our county roads here in Lake County with these maniacs with guns and silencers will NOW be killing Black Bears, legally.
It was only one short year ago that I called and spoke with the man at the top here and he promised me that this would NEVER happen.
If you have a phone, a computer or any form of communication at hand right now,
please do what ever you can to tell FFWS that this is complete insanity.
Just a short time ago this animal was listed as Endangered and now it is about to be hunted.
Below is the Bear Petition with more information.
Please think of one of the most beautiful creatures that God has ever made, lying dead on a road, only to be hauled off and dismembered, by someone who cares nothing for the beauty that it was/is, only the bragging rights for ending its life.
Here is the Bear Petition, please sign it and share it: Bear Petition
