Sharing space with wild predators host benefit
Protect your property
from wildlife damage
The beauty of Florida's remote
areas draws many to live within the
heart, or along the edge of natu-
ral settings. Many have seasonal
camps or year-round residences
in or near these remote rural sites.
Those that live in these areas know
that the possibility of attracting the
"wild" onto their personal property
does not only mean the bird at the
bird feeder, but it may also include
skunks, raccoons, opossum, bob-
cat, bear and even an occasional
Florida panther. These animals
have the ability to damage prop-
erty and may even injure or kill
domesticated animals such as pets
Unlike wild animals, most do-
mesticated animals do not have
the skills to protect themselves.
Thousands of years of breeding
have made domestic animals de-
pendent on people for protection.
There are simple and cost effec-
tive ways to avoid the loss of pets
and livestock to natural predators.
These methods will also keep your
family and neighbors safe.
Keep your pets safe
Cats and dogs are easy prey for
large predators. Keep your pets in-
doors or secure them in a covered
If you allow your pets to roam
on your property, keep in mind
that you are risking their lives -- just
as city dwellers take a risk in letting
their pets roam near a busy street,
It is illegal to allow your pet to
run, unattended and off leash with
Collier County and on Big Cypress
National Preserve lands.

Do not feed wildlife
Feeding wildlife such as deer, opossums
or raccoons only attracts predators to your
home and creates a safety risk.
Make sure that food set out for pets, live-
stock or birds is accessible only to the ani-
mals that you are trying to feed.
Fence in vegetable and fruit gardens that
might attract wildlife.
Landscape your yard with plants that
deer do not like to eat.
Build livestock enclosures
The best protection measure is to secure
livestock in fully enclosed barns, pens and
sheds. Openings, such a windows, doors or
large gaps are attractants and might provide
access for highly curious animals.
If covering your pen is not an option then
you should build a tall fence. Fences should
be at least ten feet high constructed of either
heavy woven wire or alternating hot and
grounded electric wires. Adding a wire mesh
overhang or an electric wire of at least 5,000
volts at the top of the fence may prevent
predators from climbing over.
Be sure to place all livestock enclosures,
both covered and open, away from any trees
of brush that predators might climb or hide
Protect vulnerable animals
Many wild animals are attracted to the
smell of blood. Keep injured animals or live-
stock nearing and following birth, in fully
Immediately remove and destroy after-
birth, carcasses and other animal by-prod-
ucts from areas near livestock enclosures or
Install frightening devices
Many predators depend on surprise to
Installing either motion or timer-activated
outdoor lighting around your home and ani-
mal enclosures may keep predators away.
You might also try loud noises, sprinklers
or other frightening devices, such as those
used to keep birds out of agricultural fields.
Use guard animals
Guard dogs specifically bred to protect
livestock from predators have been used for
thousands of years in Europe.
Studies conducted in Colorado, Montana,
Utah and Idaho show that properly trained
livestock guard dogs reduced predation by
as much as 93 percent.
Guard dogs are not pets and must be
specially raised and trained in order to be ef-
fective. They may also pose a risk to people
and are best suited to large herds in remote
Guard animals, such a llamas and don-
key may be more effective against small
predators. Horned animals such a cattle are
also being used in some cases as a deterrent
For information on animal enclosures
and permitting, check with the National
Park Service US Department of the Interior
or Big Cypress National Preserve.
If you live in bear country ...
Black bears are an important part of
Florida's natural heritage and keeping them
wild and away from human use areas is a re-
sponsibility we all must share. FWC is dedi-
cated to reducing conflicts between people
and bears in your community.
Black bears are naturally shy, timid ani-
mals that try to avoid people. However, as
Florida's human population and develop-
ment expands it become increasingly diffi-
cult for bears to avoid humans.
Bears can be lured into neighborhoods
when people leave easily accessible food
outside, like unsecured garbage cans or pet
food. For ways to secure your garbage and
other items that might attract bears, go to
If you see a bear in your com-
Remain calm and stay away from the bear.
The mere presence of a black bear does not
necessarily represent a problem. The bear
is most likely just passing through and will
not linger or return if it does not find food. A
bear may climb a tree in your neighborhood
to look for food or if it gets scared. Clear the
area of people and pets and allow the bear
to come down on its own when it feels safe
(usually after dark). The bear found its way
into the are and it can find its way out.
Never feed a bear
teedlng Dears, eitlmer y direct handouts
or by leaving attractants such as garbage
and pet food unsecured, is against the law
and causes bear problems. It's bad for bears
and bad for people.
What attracts bears?
Food and food smells (barbecue grills,
Garbage left outside and unsecure
Pet foods or wildlife feed left outside and
Remember, any food source that attracts
dogs, cats or raccoons will attract bears.
Did you know?
Bears can smell food from more than a
mile away and if they are rewarded with an
easy meal, they learn quickly to return to the
Curious bears that are not rewarded with
an easy meal such as garbage or pet foods
will look for food away from houses.
Bears that become used to getting human
foods may damage property or become a
threat to public safety. These bears are often
must be killed. To help avoid these prob-
lems, please done provide food for bears.
Feeding bears is against Florida law FAC
69A-4.002(3). "Intentionally placing food or
garbage, allowing the placement of food or
garbage or offering food or garbage is such
a manner that it attracts black bears, foxes
or raccoons and in a manner tat is likely to
create or crates a public nuisance is prohib-
If convicted of feeding bears, you could
face up to 60 days in jail, up to$500 in fines
What can you do to prevent
Store trash in a secure area until morning
of a pickup
Bring pet food inside, store securely
Protect gardens, compost and livestock
with electric fencing
Clean grills and store them in a secure
Remove wildlife feeders if there is a bear
in the area.

Annual Undy Sunday gears up to assist needy students
Organizers of the 14th Annual Undy Sun-
day event are preparing for more students
than ever to be in need of items to be ready
for another school year. During August about
50 Collier County churches and synagogues
will be asking their members to donate
new underwear and socks for school-aged
children along with donations of money for
other necessary school items.
Participating religious communities will
set out donation boxes on Sunday, Aug. 15
and Sunday, Aug. 22. Donors will be asked
to bring new socks and new underwear for
boys and girls sizes six through 12. Mone-
tary donations also are needed to purchase
backpacks and school supplies.
"It is undeniable that the economic prob-
lems that have affected us here in Southwest
Florida are particularly acute among the
children of the underemployed and unem-
ployed," said Armando Galella, District Di-
rector of Catholic Charities of Collier County.
The agency is organizing the event.
"In all of its fourteen year history here
in Collier County, the 2010 version of Undy
Sunday may be fulfilling the greatest need,"
Gallela said. "We are again fortunate in at-
tracting financial contributions that will al-
low Catholic Charities to supplement the
clothing donations with other useful school
needs for the underprivileged children of our
Around 15 Collier County public elemen-
tary schools, Bonita Springs Elementary
School in Lee County, Youth Haven and the
Shelter for Abused Women and other social
service agencies will receive the underwear
and socks and school supplies to distribute
to children during the school year.
Since the initial Undy Sunday in 1997,
the number of churches and synagogues
participating has more than doubled. About
600,000 undergarments have been given
to disadvantaged children in Collier County
during the past 13 years.
A group of volunteers from Catholic
Charities of Collier County will distribute col-
lection boxes to participating local churches
and synagogues prior to the two Undy Sun-
days. After the event, with help from stu-
dents of St. John Neumann High School they
will collect the donated items, and sort and
distribute them to the elementary schools
and social service agencies.
Donation items also can be dropped off
at the Catholic Charities office located at
2210 Santa Barbara from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.
Monday through Thursdays and from 9
a.m. through 3 p.m. on Fridays. For more in-
formation about the Undy Sunday Program

July 22, 2010 Immokalee Bulletin
- Deer hunters will need new permit this season
Beginning with the upcoming 2010-2011
hunting season, anyone hunting deer in Florida
will need a deer permit. The new permit costs
$5 and is available now for purchase.
Those with a Sportsman's License, Gold
Sportsman's License, 64 or Older Sportsman's
License, Military Gold Sportsman's License,
Lifetime Hunting License or Lifetime Sports
man's License will not need to purchase the
new deer permit, because it already is included
in each of these licenses, even if they were pur
chased before July 1.
However, the deer permit is not included
with a hunting license, combination hunting/
freshwater fishing license, combination hunt
ing/freshwater/saltwater license or a five year
hunting license. Anyone hunting deer with ei
their of these licenses must also buy the $5 deer
permit to hunt deer legally.
Funds generated by the new permit will be
earmarked to support deer management and
deer research. Funds also will support ongo
ing efforts to monitor Florida's deer herd for
Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD). The Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
approved a "Strategic Plan for Deer Manage
ment in Florida: 2008-2018" in February 2008.
Critical to the success of this plan is establish
ing deer management units and a harvest
reporting system; both have been identified as
top priorities by the agency and its stakehold
ers to better manage deer.
People can purchase all permits and related
licenses from their county tax collector, retail
outlets that sell fishing and hunting supplies,
online at:www.fl.wildlifelicense.com or by call
ing toll-free 888-HUNT FLORIDA (486-8356).

Quota permits no longer being mailed
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) wants to make hunters
aware that beginning this year, quota permits
for general gun, archery, muzzleloading gun,
family, youth, airboat and track will not be
mailed out to successful applicants as they
have been in the past.
Instead, the FWC is allowing hunters, who
are awarded permits in the random drawings,
to print the quota permits by going to www.
fl.wildlifelicense.com and choosing "Limited
Entry/Quota then Pickup/Pay for Awarded
Permit." For detailed instructions on how to
do this, go to MyFWC.com/Hunting and click
"Limited Entry Hunts," then "How to Print
Your Limited Entry Hunt Permit Directly from
Hunters not having access to the Internet
or a printer can pick up their awarded quota
permits at license agents or county tax collec
tors' offices. But, be prepared to give to the
clerk, the 4-digit hunt number of the hunt you
were awarded. Hunt numbers are listed on
the quota worksheets.
To check drawing results and permit avail
ability, hunters may again go to MyFWC.com/
Hunting and click "Limited Entry Hunts."
Permits issued during phase I or II can be
downloaded or picked up any time before the
hunt ends. However, if you obtain a quota
permit during the first-come, first-served
phase III, make sure to print it out at the end
of the transaction. If you go through a license
agent or tax collector during this period, you
will receive your quota permit from the clerk.
The exception is that mobility-impaired
quota hunt permits will continue to be mailed
to successful applicants. Also, the legal game
tags used in South Florida during track and
airboat quota hunts, which are still required,
will continue to be mailed to the awarded
