NJ Supreme Court Rejects Anti-Hunting Petition
It appears that New Jersey's black bear hunt will start Monday December 6th as scheduled after Judge Edwin Stern denied the petition to stop the black bear hunt.
This will be the first state black bear hunt since 2005 and anti-hunter groups are expected to turn out at check stations to protest. According to NorthJersey.com The group is now turning its attention to showing up at bear weigh stations this week to protest. The league also has three hunt-related lawsuits pending against the state Department of Environmental Protection, said Angela Metler executive director of the Animal Protection League of New Jersey.
