Dear Animals for the Care of Treatment,
A small group of vocal trophy hunters want to open a season on Florida's black bears. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission will be hosting public workshops throughout the state to get local citizen input on how this vulnerable species should be managed.
Florida's black bears are still recovering after being hunted nearly to extinction. So if you're concerned about the fate of Florida's black bears like we are, please come to one of these meetings to show your opposition to a bear hunt. Trophy hunters will show up, so it's essential that animal advocates are there, too:
Wed., June 25 from 6:30-8:00 p.m. in Sunrise: Sunrise Civic Center Ballroom (10610 W. Oakland Park Blvd.)
Thurs., June 26 from 6:30-8:00 p.m. in Naples: Collier County IFAS Extension Office (14700 Immokalee Rd.)
Tues., July 1 from 6:30-8:00 p.m. in Lehigh Acres: East County Regional Library (881 Gunnery Rd.)
No public speaking is required -- we just need you there to show opposition to a bear hunt. Let us know if you can attend or have questions at [email protected]
Thank you for taking action.
Wayne Pacelle, President & CEO
