nj anti trouble AGAIN!

NJ, logically, should not prohibit black bear hunting. The bear population in the Northeastern United states and Canada seems to be out of control. $95,000 allocated for the Humane society, assuming that the humane act is to transport or relocate, without the aid of hunting for five years, doesn't seem realistic.

I'm assuming that relocation programs per year depending on size and range are expensive to coordinate, how far is that $95,000 going to stretch, and how deep into the tax payers pockets is Sen. Joseph Vitale willing to dig, and where is the Humane society going to transport the bears?

Nobody likes having bears rummaging through their trash or having to pay higher taxs, so basically the Anti's have two strikes against them before they even step up to bat.

Good grief. What a lopsided bill, shame on any legislature that passes a bill that rips game management from government biologists and instead hands the "analysis" to a group that believes their should be no game management at all (hunting is the only effective game management tool for predators and HSUS has a public policy against all hunting).

NJ Legislature, I'll write the HSUS analysis for you for free. My donation to NJ.

TO: NJ Legislature
FROM: HSUS
Subject: NJ Bear Population

No need for hunt. Bear population fine, bear problems overated. Cubs are cute, hunters are ugly. Ban all bear hunting.

Thanks for your $95k donation. Let me know if you want a deer analysis for NJ. Cheap $50k.

Yours,
Wayne Pacelle

My prediction is that if they continue to fail in the legislature they will attempt to have a state vote to ban the hunt all together. They failed with the game department, have been turned back by the courts, and have failed a couple of times in the legislature. The governer supports the hunt, the last recourse will be ballot initiative.

The HSUS wants the Division of fish and wildlife to sterilize the bears! They say....The NJDFW already has trapped and tagged almost 800 bears. Why not just sterilize them while they are at it. The NJDFW says....We are doing all this work to prove to you people that NJ can sustain a limited bear hunt and there is no way we are going to sterilize them....I don't blame them. Funny how they will go to many extreams for thier brand of animal humanity but they don't give a damm about human beings and the many lives they are trying to ruin with thier anti hunting attitudes.
