5' lizards are eating Florida's cats

If you are so dead set on hunting in Florida, leave our bears alone and hunt for real killers, something that could and would eat your child!

Ah, Florida:

the home of sun, sand, and cat-eating lizards.

5-Foot, Cat-Eating Lizard Infesting Florida —

 Snacking On Owls, Dachshunds And Yes, Cats

African lizards, which are about five feet long, are prowling the state, looking for something tasty to eat

and apparently they’ve been known to eat cats.

One man believes the Lizard is to blame for the disappearance of his Dachshund puppies, and someone else noted that recently, there have been a quite a lot less feral cats running around, the Sun Sentinel reported.

Called the Nile Monitor, the creature doesn’t just eat cats.

It’s from Sub-Saharan Africa and can grow up to eight feet certainly big enough for the job.

In their native land, they have been known to eat smaller animals, and Florida residents in Cape Coral have blamed it for their murdered pets as well.

A cousin of the Komodo dragon, the Nile Monitor is a threat to small mammals, reptiles, fish, owls and tortoises.

Officials are trying to mitigate that threat with an aggressive campaign to rid the Sunshine state of the prowling, five-foot lizard.

Black Bears in Florida have no pockets!

Bear Hunting in the Bears backyard?

Watch and see?

Our Black Bears in Florida have no pockets!

The hunters in and around Florida have deep, deep, deep, pockets and many of Florida officials are hunters!

Care to guess who is going to win the vote?

We already know that there will be a hunt, we do not know for how long this hunt will go on?

The Florida Fish and Game Commission will meet in Tallahassee April 14-16. Among the items on the agenda for action on April 15 is a proposal to establish a hunting season for black bears, starting in the fall of 2015.

In response to growing concerns about a rising number of black bear attacks in the state in recent years, the commission instructed its staff to bring forth a proposal that would establish hunting as a management tool for controlling the population. The resulting proposal, which will be presented to the commission on April 15, would establish a seven-day hunting season with harvest objectives established based on regional bear management units. The first season would occur October 24-30. The commission would not restrict the number of permits sold, but would instead utilize a quota system and each bear management unit’s season would be subject to strict harvest objectives.

Remember this posting after next week when the Fish and Wild votes on hunting our Black Bears!

OK I answered today's comments so far, if you had a strange answer it was, in part, because I answered anyone that wrote on the post that you wrote on to save time, my body is still upset with me because of the accident no matter who was at fault!

Gopher tortoises cannot swim!

As of lately it would seem the people are putting gopher tortoises in the ocean trying to save them when in fact they will drown!

Meet Gopher Tortoise-The Only Turtle Species That Cannot Swim

FWC: Stop putting gopher tortoises in water

Florida wildlife officials want residents and visitors to know that not all turtles can swim.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission reported Friday that there were at least three instances last month of people "helping" gopher tortoise hatchlings to the ocean. Gopher tortoises cannot swim well and can easily drown.

I know a dummy from Uncasvillage that tried to give his "Land Lord" a bath because she was so dirty, full of mud!

It took Harriett about a month to forgive me on that one, mean while I checked "Doctor Google" and found out that gopher tortoises life in the ground and do not like water!

That was about 15 years ago.

Remember Ishi cannot swim!
