Black Bear Removed From New Jersey Turnpike
NJ.com has a story running about a black bear that became a spectacle near the New Jersey Turnpike’s Exit 8 in East Windsor. From the variety of photos available with the article, it appears safely removing the 300 pound bear was quite an ordeal.
The two- to three-year-old male was at least 20 feet above the ground in the tree for almost four hours, said Larry Hajna, a spokesman for the state Department of Environmental Protection. Hajna said the bear had to be removed because it was visible by Turnpike traffic and started to draw a crowd.
