Bears An authorized hunt in Florida
The limits were reached in two of the four districts approved for hunting in the first day of the hunt and no more bears will be allowed to be killed in those areas.
Environmentalists and animal rights groups oppose the planned hunt, which the FWC justified on the grounds that black bears had become a nuisance in many areas, attacking people and pets, and scavenging for food around homes. ■
