Stacy White: No more bear hunts
It wasn't exactly shocking when St. Petersburg Council member Karl Nurse came out recently to oppose another statewide bear hunt.
But Republican, tea-party-backed Hillsborough County Commissioner Stacy White?
In today's Tampa Bay Times, White, an avid hunter, said he couldn't support the bear hunt because there are already too few bears. White said he will bring forward a resolution against the hunt at the County Commission meeting.
If commissioners approve White's resolution, Hillsborough would join other communities -- Clermont, Eustis, Deltona and Miami-Dade who oppose the hunt. St. Petersburg will be considering Nurse's request, as well.
