Most NJ Residents Agree With Bear Hunt
A new poll shows that most New Jersey residents agree with a planned black bear hunt this fall. In the past, N.J. black bear hunts have been halted at the last minute by various anti-hunting groups. If this year's hunt proceeds it will be the first hunt since 2005 and the New Jersey Fish and Game Council says the hunt is needed to control the 3500 bruins in the state.
NJ.com has the details on the poll. The Fairleigh Dickinson-PublicMind poll out today found 53 percent of respondents agreed the hunt should be held if wildlife biologists conclude it's needed to thin the state's black bear population and if the bruins are destroying private property.
