美國佛羅里達州黑熊曾被獵殺至瀕危,經過21年的保育及禁獵後數目終於脫離危機。當局決定季節性開放讓市民打獵320頭黑熊。怎料在開放後兩天已達295頭,當局立刻提早結束打獵季,免得牠們被過分獵殺。

in Florida, american black bear were once endangered because of hunting and habitat loss. with the help of conservation and hunting ban, they are finally removed from the endangered species list 3 years ago. the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) opened the area for hunting again after 21 years of the ban and allowing 320 bears to be killed. however, just in two days at least 295 bears were killed. so the FWC called an end to the hunt to prevent the bears being over killed.
