All indications point to Florida’s first bear season in decades being a tremendous success.

How well did it go?

Just watch.

Wildlife officials said on Sunday, Florida’s first bear hunt in two decades, which sparked protests by animal rights activists, was called off after just two days after nearly 300 bears were killed. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said in a statement, the hunt, slated to last up to one week and allow as many as 320 black bears to be killed, was ended after 295 of the animals were “harvested.” As hunters were more proficient than anticipated, the agency said hunting in the central and east panhandle portions of the state were closed on Saturday, after just one day of hunting.
