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. Link: Also and article from the Naples News:
