Florida advances bear hunting after spate of suburban attacks

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 02/05/2015 - 08:22
By Barbara Liston ORLANDO, Fla. (Reuters) - Florida wildlife authorities took a step on Wednesday toward ending the state's 20-year bear-hunting ban, advancing a proposal for a one-week season this autumn amid concerns that bears are becoming a threat in suburban neighborhoods. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission did not take a formal vote, but agreed to begin preparing bear-hunting rules. Four people have been injured in bear attacks in Florida since 2012, mostly in the central part of the state built on former bear habitat near the Ocala National Forest. Of the 41 states where black bears are found, 32 allow them to be hunted, according to an agency report.
