Sign the Petition to

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission

Today, I heard on the news that a black bear was being euthanized for falling asleep on a lanai in Naples, Florida. The reason why Florida Fish and Wildlife said they needed to euthanize was because the bear "no longer feared humans." Another bear was euthanized in July for hiding under a boardwalk at a high end hotel. I believe this practice should be stopped and the bears should either be relocated or put into sanctuaries to live out their lives. Euthanizing these bears is just unbelievable. Their habitat is constantly being destroyed so these bears are left with few places to go. It's no wonder they accidentally find themselves amongst humans. Please read the article from ABC News covering the story.

I hope that by many people signing this petition, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission will consider alternatives to euthanasia for these beautiful bears. The bears should be relocated or taken to sanctuaries rather than having their lives cut short.
