We just heard from Chuck O'Neal, chairman of the Natural Resources Committee of the League of Women Voters of Florida, that the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission has just voted to authorize bear hunting in Florida – the first such hunt in 21 years. After hours of testimony, and after the Humane Society of the United States presented a petition with more than 90,000 signatures from people opposed to bear hunting in the state, the FWC voted to move forward with bear season.
