She Is Dead

The mother Black Bear who bit a Condo resident
last week is dead, they killed her.
A Florida Black Bear
Please lock up your garbage,
I don't want to die! 
Her baby, they say, has been shipped off to a 
Marion County Endangered Animal Sanctuary.
This will, I repeat, will happen again and again.
Do you know why?
Because absolutely nothing, has changed in this
situation, except that this young mother was killed.
The trash crates are all still at the doors of these
Condo residents and likely everywhere else across
Central Florida.
Condo garbage dumpsters are not secured and this
will keep happening until someone at the top ends this 
needless nightmare, by passing some real legislation with teeth in it.
A law must be passed to hold condo management and owners, as well
as home owners responsible for their garbage.
A beautiful, wild, warm blooded animal should not have to die
because lazy, thoughtless, idiots refuse to lock up their garbage.
Remember the line in Avatar?
"This is your fault, they did not need to die."
She did not need to die!

  2. You're absolutely right! Humans just dont want to be inconvenienced. And that woman was just plain stupid but no she needed to walk her dog. I hope everytime she sits down she's reminded that another being lost its life and another lost its mother.
