Florida is holding its first bear hunt in more than two decades, despite opposition from animal rights campaigners.

The state's Wildlife Conservation Commission is allowing licensed hunters to kill a total of 320 black bears.

It said the aim was to stabilise the growing number of the animals.

But activists said the state should instead focus on waste management and curbing the smell of food in garbage.

More than 200 bears were killed yesterday.
