Bear-Resident Trash Cans For Wakulla County Residents

Jun 26, 2017

Wakulla County residents will now be able to keep their garbage safe from bears in the area, thanks to a grant from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

Spring is in the air, hungry Florida black bears are looking for love, and state game officials are urging caution.

Democratic lawmakers are calling for a 10-year moratorium on black bear hunting in Florida.

An independent researcher is confirming the state’s claims about a rebounding Florida black bear population. 

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has signed a memorandum of understanding with Waste Pro in a move officials say will increase the availability of bear resistant trashcans.
