Mama bears killed

It was horrific enough that the state sanctioned the killing of 304 bears, but how many cubs are out there starving after the murder of their mothers?

Thirty-eight females may have left behind nursing cubs and, yet, Thomas Eason, director of the Florida’s misnamed Habitat and Species Conservation division, states, “Our rules did a good job of moving the harvest pressure off females that may have had cubs.” What does that even mean, especially to cubs left behind? Disgusting.
