Bear caught, euthanized
after attack on woman

Orlando Sentinel, by Arelis R. Hernández and Stephen Hudak

Original Article

Posted By:Hazymac, 12/5/2013 2:18:50 PM

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission biologists caught a 200-pound bear in the Longwood neighborhood where a woman was injured by a bear Monday night. The trapped female bear "closely fits the description of the animal that was involved" in the mauling of 54-year-old Susan Chalfant while she was walking her dogs Monday night. In a statement from FWC spokeswoman Karen Parker, because the bear was caught late Wednesday —within 48 hours of the incident and near the area where the woman was injured, "the decision was made to euthanize the bear." Samples from the bear will be sent in for testing,

Comments:
Several years ago the Tampa Tribune ran an interesting article about the (then) eight known areas in the state where bears live. There may be more now. Since bear hunting has nearly ceased nationwide, their populations are growing, and encounters between bears and people are increasing. Black bears aren´t as large as grizzlies, but they are more likely to "finish" an attack on a human. Like whitetail deer, bears have proliferated to the point where they must be hunted.

A 200 pound bear? That´s a tiny one. Hunters here (Northwest NJ) get 700pounders. And I have seen many huge ones, plenty of them. Best thing to have in bear country is a loud barking dog. Bears try to avoid that.

But have to disagree with the OP. Large scale hunting will probably result in people being attacked by wounded bears.

Need to consider paying state level Dept of Fish and Game start norplanting the females. Cost $$$, but the safest way.

If the bear had been a star football player, the woman would have been blamed for walking her dogs at the wrong time.

Perhaps the bear acting "like a bear" is funny, but there are too many of them. Kids wait in the dark for school buses and wild animals in neighborhoods cannot be tolerated. We also are being overrun with wild boar, and Florida is home to more than one million alligators. As these animals multiply, their food becomes more scarce.
Man has dominion over animals for a reason.

More and more stupid humans cause animals to loose their lives when the animal is only doing what they do in their environment.

Talk about a fateful trade. In 1954, Jackson Pollock gave two of his paintings to New York art dealer Martha Jackson in exchange for her sporty green convertible. Two years later, on a hot August evening after a day of drinking gin, Pollock crashed that same Oldsmobile 88 less than a mile from his home on New York´s Long Island, killing himself and a friend of his mistress. He was 44 years old. The mistress, Ruth Kligman, was also in the car but survived. Years later she wrote in a memoir that Pollock had been "speeding wildly" and missed a

Is Barack Obama simply too busy to be Chief Executive of the United States? Apparently. One of the primary functions of the president is to keep the nation safe, to preserve it from its enemies. To do that effectively, one would actually have to maintain something of a consistent level of attention to the moving pieces that directly influence how future events will unfold. None other than the truly sycophantic thinks for a second that President Obama cares a whit for anything that does not involve fundamentally altering the social composition of this country. Or golf.

The West’s Ukrainian Folly:

Back when Reagan ran things, we didn’t blather about sanctions against Russia. We used clandestine methods to sabotage its natural gas exports and other key functions. The largest non-nuclear man-made explosion in history, the 1982 Russian natural gas pipeline disaster, was one of the results. A mastermind of this well-documented operation (and some other yet-to-be-documented operations) was the director of planning at the National Security Council under Richard Allen and William Clark, Dr. Norman A. Bailey, who held the title of special assistant to the president. Bailey employed a small team of contractors to obtain intelligence on areas of interest,

Michael Crowley at Time asks a rhetorical question: “Could the crisis in Crimea spoil Barack Obama’s nuclear diplomacy with Iran?” He answers it himself: “No.” (Snip) Can anyone say why, having done all that, they should even mind linking Iran to the current crisis in Ukraine? Yet in the midst of this, the administration has the effrontery to claim that they can discount “concerns that Russia might undermine the Iran nuclear talks.” It’s like they are living on another planet. Putin is acting in a very unstable way. Perhaps even in an insane way. Even the Europeans are running scared.

President Barack Obama said Wednesday that he thinks Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick “would make a great president or vice president.” Obama and Patrick, both Democrats, are friends and close political allies. The two men have campaigned for each other, with Patrick acting as a surrogate for Obama nationally during the 2012 presidential race. Patrick has said clearly that he intends to return to the private sector when his second term as governor is up at the end of the year and will not run for president in 2016. But he has not ruled out a run for office in the

Are animal-rights activists really

Tom Wilson and Ben Cohen have already written on these pages about how European liberals, supposedly in the name of animal rights, are banning kosher (and halal) slaughter. In such cases, concern for animal rights seems to be a rather thin veneer for other political objectives that have far more to do with intolerant ideologies than they do with protecting animals. In the United States, animal-rights activism has found other pet causes but, at its core, activists seem less interested in protecting animals than in broader political agendas.

Gun-free doesn´t equal risk-free

Seizing on the sorrowful wake of the horror in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, gun-control advocates redoubled their efforts, hoping – among other things – to turn gun-free school zones into really, really gun-free school zones. Plans were drafted to harden school entrances and hire additional armed law enforcement to patrol each campus, neither of which is a lousy idea. But Alan Hays, a state senator from the very heart of Florida, says it isn’t enough. On the theory that fences can be defeated and lone rangers can be distracted or leave campus for lunch, the Umatilla Republican wants school

A primary duty of a sovereign nation is to put policies in place to protect the country from both military and economic aggressors. This normally includes the creation of a capable military force (and protective military alliances) and competent economic policies to make sure the country is not dependent on key resources from or exports to potential enemies. Ukraine, for a variety of reasons, some outside its control, violated these defensive principles. (Snip) The Department of Energy has been engaging in regulation by strangulation. As John Kemp of Reuters reported on March 13: "By making regulatory barriers and the permitting

If it isn´t fermented in Tennessee from mash of at least 51 percent corn, aged in new charred oak barrels, filtered through maple charcoal and bottled at a minimum of 80 proof, it isn´t Tennessee whiskey. So says a year-old law that resembles almost to the letter the process used to make Jack Daniel´s, the world´s best-known Tennessee whiskey. Now state lawmakers are considering dialing back some of those requirements that they say make it too difficult for craft distilleries to market their spirits as Tennessee whiskey, a distinctive and popular draw in the booming American liquor business.

In a melancholy passage of the Nicomachean Ethics, Aristotle observes that we can follow certain courses of action which will put us in situations where there is no right response. Whatever we do, it will be wrong, or at least unhappy. (Snip) For five years, you’ve been jetting around the world at vast expense to apologize for America. You apologized to the Muslims. You apologized to Hugo Chavez. You bowed deeply to the Saudi despot.

With New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie stalled by the “Bridgegate” affair, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has become the establishment´s candidate and top pick to win the 2016 GOP presidential nomination, according to a new analysis of the race. “We now consider Bush the leader of the field if he decides to run,” said the influential “Crystal Ball” from the University of Virginia´s Center for Politics. “In recent months, we’ve noticed an unmistakable and widespread desire among some of the Republicans we talk to, particularly ones who would be classified as members of the establishment on and off Capitol Hill, for a third Bush nominee in less than three decades.

First lady Michelle Obama, her two daughters, Malia and Sasha, and her mother touched down Thursday in China for what’s being touted as a weeklong feel-good tourist event, amid increasing murmurs back home about U.S. taxpayers having to foot the bill.

Black students are more likely to be suspended from U.S. public schools — even as tiny preschoolers. The racial disparities in American education, from access to high-level classes and experienced teachers to discipline, were highlighted in a report released Friday by the Education Department´s civil rights arm. The suspensions — and disparities — begin at the earliest grades. Black children represent about 18 percent of children in preschool programs in schools, but they make up almost half of the preschoolers who are suspended more than once, the report said. Six percent of the nation´s districts with preschools reported suspending at
