All you have to do is simply mention the NJ Black Bear hunt and you'll get a passionate reaction from almost anyone !
The fact is, nobody in any state or federal capacity can give an ACCURATE population report for the bears that live in the area! The best they can offer is an 'estimate based on scientific research'
There are very well researched arguments for both sides of the debate!
Personally , my only question is....does anyone REALLY need to kill a Black Bear ?
Can't we find a way to let them live freely in their OWN ENVIRONMENT that we humans have over developed for our own selfish uses ?
We've stripped the planet of its creatures and resources for long enough...
