Florida FWCC Needs More Money to Deal With Problem Bears

This story might even be funny if it didn’t involve public safety. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is asking for more money to, “help them wrestle the growing number of black-bear complaints.” According to some, Florida hasn’t learned to coexist with bears, I say in the context of being the smart ass that I am.

You see, groups like the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and other perverted, politically and monetarily driven, corrupt groups, spend countless millions of dollars lying to people telling them too many bears isn’t a problem and they seem to have figured out, somehow, that hunting and trapping bears, which historically has proven to control populations, only increases the likelihood of human/bear encounters, but letting the animals grow unchecked will offer no negative consequences. Go figure.

In Maine, the Humane Society of the United States, a group that has probably never stepped foot inside the Pine Tree State, want to dictate to Maine residents how they should manage their black bears. In their campaign of propaganda and lies, they are attempting to convince people that there does not exist a problem of too many bears that equate to too many problems resulting in increased threats to public safety.

The Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife (MDIFW) has repeatedly stated that if they cannot successfully find ways of controlling bear populations, it will snowball into other problems, including increased bear and human encounters. Historically, as the bear population increases, so do the number of reported complaints by people. With more incidents, the odds increase that someone is going to get hurt.

So, with groups like HSUS lying about bear facts, try to figure this out and how it proves that HSUS is wrong and needs to be exposed for their lies.

Florida needs more money to deal with increased bear complaints. Florida, a state with 65,755 square miles and a bear population of 3,000, needs money to deal with increased bear problems. Maine has 35,385 square miles of territory (nearly half of Florida) and 30,000 bears (ten times Florida). Maine has nearly 20 times the number of bears per square mile and yet Florida is asking for money to deal with problem bears.

Maine has dealt with bears for a long time and has budgeted money to combat bear complaints. But they cannot monetarily sustain a continued increase in the number of complaints, in addition to knowing that it is only a matter of time before someone gets seriously hurt. The last thing Maine needs is some radical, perverted group of totalitarians forcing the MDIFW’s management practices to coincide with their corrupt and radical predator protection programs.

The bottom line here is that if HSUS is not lying then why does Florida need money to combat bear complaints as their bear population grows?
