Open season?

Florida homeowners may have fewer legal worries after killing a bear on their property under an amended measure the Senate sent back to the House. The bill (HB 87), sponsored by Rep. Jason Shoaf, would allow Floridians to use lethal force if a bear roams onto their property and they believe it poses a threat to themselves, another person, a pet or their home.

Under the bill, people who kill a bear on their property must notify the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission within 24 hours. They would also be prohibited from selling or disposing of any part of the animal.
