It Is Over!

A beautiful Black Bear Cub. Will we ever see another one? Picture credit: Unknown   Score Scott and Company ONE, Florida Black Bears  Zero! I had to compose myself before writing this, it took some time. Yesterday in Tallahassee, Judge Reynolds, who I am reasonably sure was appointed by Scott, said that the FWCC had every right and indeed, every responsibility to order […]

Mixed Blessings

A magnificent Florida Panther Picture credit: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers   On our news this morning were at first glance what appeared to be three happy/good stories. After so many wildlife tragedies in the news lately, these were absolutely welcomed and needed to be shared. First the numbers for our critically endangered Florida Panther have reported to have rebounded and were cause […]

Bison and Bears, the connection~

Wood Bison in Wood Buffalo National Park in Alberta, Canada Picture credit:  Laura Kaupas.   As you may have noticed, there has been a two month gap in postings here. The reason is that my heart has been broken over the imminent approval of Hunting our beautiful Florida Black Bear. The final, fateful decision is expected in […]

Double Entendre or Controlled Florida Bear Hunting

And coming soon to Florida! Picture credit: William A. Troyer – US Fish and Wildlife Service   In the little publicized, poorly defined FFWS meeting in Jacksonville yesterday, not much was really accomplished or confirmed about the plan to renew Black Bear hunting in this state. We still do not really know exactly how, when, where or what is going […]

We Are Their Only Hope

          Brown Pelican, Black Bear cub and Rhinos   It has been entirely too long since I have been able to share any news about wildlife with all of you, so today’s posting will address several issues, I apologize and hope that you have a big pot of coffee nearby~ To begin this morning,  and it […]

Guilty!

Beautiful, Bashful, Black Bear Cubs~ Picture credit:  FWC   I am sure that you all remember the horrific stories written  here about the Seven Black Bears,  that were killed in the Orlando area recently. It was a sad, sad, sickening thing to have to write about and watch unfold. Many hearts were broken,  as this story was on the […]

Cantankerous Cranes~

These were taken across the street from our house on April 30, when there were still TWO chicks. Today there is only one chick remaining. Picture credit: Walkingfox   A story in my email this morning reflects an ongoing situation that makes those of us who love the Sandhill Cranes  more than just a little edgy. For the […]

A Day of Animal Mourning

A Florida Panther, Everglades National Park 2005 National Park Service Photo by Rodney Cammauf   While watching Sam Champion on the Weather Channel this morning, I was painfully reminded,  that today is  “Endangered Species Day.” Today is shamefully called National,  or is it Global Endangered Species Day? This day was apparently created nearly a decade ago, by the US […]

Numbers!

A Florida Black Bear Cub Picture credit:  FWC **An update 4/17/2014  5 AM** FWC  just announced that there will be fines and possible jail time for anyone caught feeding Bears. This comes too late for SEVEN Black Bears!   Today with heavy and trouble heart,  I am imploring you to do something for an animal that […]

Euthanized and Harvested

A Florida Alligator sunning itself on shore. Picture credit: John White   Recently someone asked me how I choose the subjects of the Blogs posted here. My answer to him/her,  made perfect sense,  to me at least. I said that if something makes me cry or very angry, it is going to be passed along to […]

When humans, cars and concrete came into […]

The Visitors

A Beautiful Florida Black Bear Picture credit: Dr. William Weber   For many years people have asked me about my complete dedication and passion for animals. An answer: just now Breanna did her ” OMG bark. ” This is the one reserved for very special occasions. I went to her window to look for the […]
