Man Charged wtih the 2006 killing of a black bear
The Northwest Florida Daily News and the WWSB 7 in Sarasota both picked up on a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission news release involving charges against a Bay County man who allegedly killed a black bear in Gulf County just before Christmas 2006. The man is charged with committing a third degree felony, which is punishable by up to a $5,000 fine and up to five years imprisonment. “The investigation took a little longer than usual, but that’s the way these things work sometimes,” said Neal Goss, an investigator with FWC. Goss said the suspect will be transferred to the Gulf County Jail.
