Birthday Cake Eating Bear Terrorizing North Florida
Bears, we will let you get away with a lot. You can paw through our trash. You can sneak into our yards. But when you come into our houses and steal our delicious, frosted, high fat birthday cakes you've simply crossed a line, and it means only one thing: death.
, The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is on the hunt for a black bear in Macclenny, Florida, a small town a bit outside Jacksonville near the Georgia border.
"Relocating this bear is not an option," says commission spokeswoman Karen Parker in a news release. "Public safety is our No. 1 concern. When we catch it, we will euthanize it. We do not want the bear entering another house."
