IOTD …. Image of the day, #367 …. “Bear Hunting Season starts in Florida Today”!!


~~October 24, 2015~~ 


On June 24th, 2015 the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission approved a state wide hunt from October 24-30th to kill Florida’s black bears. The reasons stated for the approval were “population control” and “to reduce human/ bear confrontations”.

More than 175,000 people reached out to the commission in opposition to the hunt. About 250 people indicated support of the hunt. These 250 supporters of the cruel hunt primarily consisted of trophy hunters and weapon and gun interest groups. Many reputable organizations such as the Humane Society of the United States and The Center for Biological Diversity publicly stated their concern about the hunt and presented multiple scientific studies showing that hunting is not an effective population management tool. Despite the state’s own Bear Biologist testifying that this hunt could be postponed until a census is complete, the FWC voted in favor of the hunt.


The hunt is unnecessary

We don’t know the bear’s current population

Florida has confiscated 82% of the Florida Black Bear’s original habitat by clearing land for commercial and residential building

Florida has sold off the Florida Black Bear’s main fall food source

Residents can minimize human-bear interactions

Innocent animals will experience great suffering and cruel deaths

There is no plan for monitoring or policing the hunt

Selling unlimited permits is wreckless and negligent

There have been no deaths due to bears in the state of Florida, and they are large but docile creatures

A dear blogger friend taught me this concept.

IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”
