New Jersey Black Bear. Chris Christie, Bob Martin, David Chanda, Larry Herrighty. Black Bear Vilified.
Is this the New Jersey black bear we are supposed to fear? Governor Christie, Commissioner Bob Martin of the Department of Environmental Protection, David Chanda and Larry Herrighty of the Division of Fish & Wildlife wants us to consider a black bear in our backyard as a danger to ourselves and our children. And the hunting cabal in the state fans the fire of fear and hate, trumpets overpopulation fairy tale, to justify the yearly massacre of the black bears. The trophy hunts of 2010 & 2011 killed close to 600 bears respectively, approximately 1200 bears total so far. But, do you know that there has never been a black bear attack on a human in New Jersey. Can you see why?
