Floridians Will Never Support Bear Hunting!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 150,000!

In 2015 a total of 304 bears were killed during the first Florida black bear hunt in 21 years. Among the bears slaughtered were lactating mother bears and cubs. The vast majority of Floridians opposed the 2015 Florida Black Bear Hunt, and after photographs and videos surfaced depicting the brutal and cruel nature of the hunt, the story went viral and outraged ensued not only in Florida but worldwide.

The furor that resulted from the hunt quickly turned into action, and the State of Florida united to fight against future bear hunts. In 2016, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) voted down the proposal for another hunt due to overwhelming public opposition. Additionally, the FWC Commissioners voted to halt the bear hunt until 2019, at which time they would discuss where they were at with their bear management plan. The black bears will be on the agenda this year in the Fall. We must remind the FWC that Floridians will never accept a bear hunt in their State!

Please sign and share our petition to let the FWC know that trophy hunting bears in our State is not acceptable!!!
