"A Golden Gate Estates man is suspected of illegally killing a black bear in Collier County, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Division of Law Enforcement," reported the Naples Daily News.
Add your name if you want to punish wicked people who illegally hunt and kill animals for their own entertainment!
"The bear was a cub, nicknamed Bailey by area residents, and was shot and killed on June 2, according to a press release from the Humane Society of the United States.
""The cub was not only shot and killed illegally, the shooter failed to notify the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission about the incident, which prolonged the suffering of this young animal," said Kate MacFall, Florida senior state director for the Humane Society of the United States, in the press release," reported the same source.
There is no excuse for this kind of cruelty.
That poor little bear cub should have been treated humanely.
It sounds like he was separated from his mother - he should have been taken to a sanctuary and given a chance at a long, happy life.
But instead, all he got was a bullet.
Countless wild animals meet a similar fate every year.
It's time to do something about.
Senator Bernie Sanders has been a long-term advocate for animal rights, and has co-sponsored numerous pieces of legislation to protect endangered species, as well as to combat animal cruelty.
That's why we're asking him to lead a movement in Congress that would punish people like Kyle Stevens, who illegal poach animals.
Don't you want to protect wildlife?
Then add your name to ask Bernie Sanders to take charge of this issue and impose strict punishments on poachers!
