Black bear memorial led by 5 yr old Animal Hero Kid

black bear memorial led by 5 yr old Animal Hero Kid

Last week’s Florida black bear hunt saw nearly 300 bears killed, with 207 coming on the first day alone. On Sunday, a 5 year-old boy who has been outspoken over the hunt on YouTube will be leading a Black Bear Memorial in Orlando.

Among the groups is Animal Hero Kids, a charity that encourages and recognizes kids like Khendall, the 5-year-old who will be leading the memorial.
