Hunting critics want FWC seat

I posted yesterday about an editorial critiquing of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission's focus on promoting raccoon hunting, but at the time had not seen this article in the Lakeland Ledger with a similar theme, that refers to the current FWC as a "hook and bullet" agency. The Humane Society of the United States is supporting to conservation-minded to fill upcoming vacancies on the commission.

I'd be happy if they'd shorten their name to the Florida Wildlife Commission because (1) fish are wildlife too, aren't they? and (2) it means less typing. I guess that's what I end up referring to them as most of the time. Plus, their website uses the acronym FWC already... shouldn't it technically be FFWCCC? Just some observations...
