2010 Bear Hunt. A Message from Keep Life in the Park. Gov. Christie. DEP Bob Martin. DFW Larry Herrighty.

Dear Friends,

My sincere thanks to all who came out to the demo yesterday in the Whittingham Wildlife Management Area in Fredon. We easily numbered 150 and our energy was palpable as we expressed our outrage at this hunt, not only at the few hunters who brought in the bears they slaughtered, but to the NJ Div. of Fish & Wildlife staff, whose arrogant Assistant Director of Operations, Larry Herrighty aka 'Lampchop', viewed us cowardly through binoculars. All week, they felt so threatened that not only were State Police on hand, AND Homeland Security, but some DFW officers appeared to be wearing green bullet-proof vests. Excuse me - we are NON-VIOLENT. THEY HAVE THE GUNS!

This is not the end but only the beginning of much ongoing dedicated work to ensure that NJ legislators, 'get the message' LOUD AND CLEAR: that we are not going to forget this; that we are going to hold them accountable; and that we will VOTE THEM OUT. We are going to expose the New Jersey Outdoor Alliance for the bullies and thugs that they are, intimidating reporters, legislators, and anyone even remotely opposed to hunting. We will target (no pun intended) State and Div. of Fish & Wildlife for restricting our Constitutional rights of assembly in limiting our numbers, particularly the first days of the hunt. This is only the beginning.

Stay with us my friends. Be pro-active with action alerts. Together we have the power to make change to protect animals. Stay tuned.

Thank you on behalf of all the animals.
