Hunt them. Let the biologists set a safe harvest quota and manage them with licenses.

Because, when you kill one bear, all his bear friends will gather with each other at bear tea time and speculate about the reasons for the bear war, and they will print it in their bear newspapers* that they have nothing to fear if they don't drag children into the woods, because of course, humans will wage a bear propaganda campaign, and that's how we'll win.

This.  The bear population far healthier than it was 20 years ago (300 to 3000).

Let the bears eat them! Then the Florida tag will be the Bear tag. I'm all right with that.

This is not so weird to me, considering the whole reason KY has a bear season is that the state Department of Wildlife kind of had to formally admit bears were in the state (after about twenty years of vehement denials despite multiple reports of bear sightings, pictures, etc.)...when a big ol' black bear and her cubs sauntered into the Kentucky Welcome Center on I-75.

Fortunately we've not had bear maulings of people, partly because (amazingly) people have known there were bears for twenty years or more and tended to take bear precautions...Florida...probably not so much and they've gone habituated to man as a result.

/there have been reliable reports of cougars in KY for about as long but these keep getting denied, even though there are Illinois DFW-confirmed breeding cougar populations just to the west of us
//expect it will be admitted there are cougars in the state when a great big kitty shows up at a rest area :D

How about trying to secure your garbage and not leave shiat out that attracts bears before you go directly to killing them?
Or is it too much to ask to take care of your garbage?

Do both. Although leaving shiat out would make the hunting easier.

We know we have bears in FL.  One of the optional FL license plates even has a bear on it:

www.gator-woman.com

They also occasionally wander around neighborhoods and swim in peoples pools.

The interaction with humans is in a large part because we keep developing on land that they used to inhabit, and most of Florida's population is on the coasts with the middle part mostly being open for wildlife, especially in the southern tip where the Everglades and Big Cypress parks being home to a ton of wildlife that doesn't necessarily stay put.

Really, I don't think we need bear hunting.  When it comes to invasive species, sure, go wild.  Bears are supposed to be here.

How about we stop developing in land in the Wekuva basin where all the bears hang out?

I thought I got away from this when I moved here from South Florida. You know, where New Yorkers buy homes in the swamp and then complain about the gators?

Actually, believe it or not, but animals actually do respond to hunting pressure, and will avoid all humans whenever possible if they are being actively hunted.

We had a coyote problem in my neighborhood a few years ago.  They were getting rather bold, to the point where you couldn't scare them away anymore even in broad daylight, and we had a bunch of small kids on our street (that backs up against a few dozen acres of protected "wetlands").   One that made us especially nervous was lame:  It might see a 5 or 6 year old in the backyard as prey once it got hungry enough.

So I shot one, and actively hunted the others (during legal coyote season, of course).  I only killed one.  They rather quickly got the message that hanging around houses and near humans was detrimental to their health.  After that, the remaining coyotes stayed out in the woods and away from people.  Where they belong.

Granted, coyotes are more social than bears, but the same thing would happen:  If you apply enough hunting pressure on the bears, they will recognize that being near humans is a bad thing.

Well, that would pretty much mean just about everywhere, as bears were everywhere in the US before we killed most of them off.  Same goes for Elk, deer, rattlesnakes, Bison, etc.. so yeah, since that idea won't work, try securing your crap.    

Some idiot down the road from me built his house in the swamp.  In it.  Ohio swamp.  The house is for sale.  I'm guessing it won't be an easy sell.   Family knows the guy who put in his driveway, and it took several attempts. I'm told the property is acting like a sinkhole.  lol

"When I first came here, this was all swamp. Everyone said I was daft to build a castle on a swamp, but I built in all the same, just to show them. It sank into the swamp. So I built a second one. That sank into the swamp. So I built a third. That burned down, fell over, then sank into the swamp. But the fourth one stayed up. And that's what you're going to get, Lad, the strongest castle in all of England."
