Local Governments Issue Resolutions Against The Slaughter of the Black Bear. By Geniusofdespair


Palmetto Bay, Pinecrest and South Miami have passed resolutions opposing future Bear hunts in Florida. Florida Fish and Wildlife instituted and supported the hunts and plans to repeat the fiasco next year.

This thank you letter to Cindy Lerner, the Mayor of Pinecrest says it best:
I would like to take the time to thank you for being a voice for the voiceless and speaking for Florida’s Black Bears. I was a check station monitor and it was truly the hardest thing I have ever had to endure. During my time at station #21 in the Ocala National Forest, I recorded 11 lactating females and 1 cub brought in; there were bears that the FWC promised would be protected and they did nothing. As a lifelong educator, I work hard to teach my students that Florida’s unique ecosystem is truly our treasure and more valuable than strip malls or condominiums. I work to show them that we can strike a balance between our communities and those of our wild neighbors. I thank you for allowing me the opportunity to show my students that there are caring people in our government who also see the value of wild lands and animals.
Sincerely,
Thomas Allison
Ocala, Fl


In less than 2 days in October 295 bears were killed by hunters. Disgusting.


A big thank you goes out to Palmetto Bay, Pinecrest and South Miami for being humane to our wildlife. Now everyone contact Fish and Wildlife.

If there isn't cell phone reception in the hunt location, which there probably isn't, then there will never be a way to stop the hunt when the limit of bears has been reached. Bob Welsh, South Miami

Does this mean I should put down the bear claw I am eating while I ready this?

According to Paul Mccready's research 98 percent of the biomass on land is related to animal agriculture and pets. The number has been increasing and decimating wild animals in over a century. Humanity is the Frankenstein.

A similar resolution is also on the agenda for Cutler Bay's council meeting this Wednesday, January 20. Hopefully, other municipalities in South Florida will continue the trend.

This hunt was limited to black bears. I bet they would not have allowed the hunt if the bears were white.

These Mayors and commissioners locally need to get the municipal governments and state legislators on board where there are actually bears.
These feelgood resolutions are about as useful as the Morse code. Maybe when the Beach, Coral Gables and Key Biscayne pass resolutions against bear hunting that will turn the issue on it's head?
