State just wants to make $ off the bears. They should run ads for the Great Florida Armadillo Hunt! They look great mounted! The flip in the air like a Mahi when shot! Layoff the bears and get the pests.

They are beautiful. I hope they do not have a hunt for them. They can all hide at my house, the bears are welcome too.

I feel that some day Flagler County is going to do this and jack our fees on us! I don't think we have had a big enough problem with bears, etc. to even come close to warrant animal proof cans. My personal trash cans are animal proof as it is now. If you don't protect your trash until it's picked up, then you deserve to run around your yard and street cleaning up your mess in front of your neighbors.Don't be dumb, think smart!

I love it they are so adorable. Another reason to lock your car doors. Was kind of glad that they found something to snack on though.
