NEW JERSEY OFFICIALS DO AN ABOUT-FACE ON BEAR HUNTING
Recent news reports indicate that Governor James McGreevey of New Jersey is urging the Fish and Game Council not to hold a bear hunt in 2004.
The reports note that McGreevey received more than 14,500 letters against the hunt (with just 2,800 for it), and that this volume of correspondence exceeded that of any other issue the Governor has dealt with. And Bradley Campbell, the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Commissioner who last year was the public face supporting and defending the controversial bear hunt, has written a letter to the Council opposing the hunt, noting that, "At the time of the Council's adoption of the Game Code last year, the Fish and Wildlife Division presented black bear population estimates to the Council of approximately 3200 animals.
The most recent estimate by our black bear biologists presents an estimate of less than half that number." The DEP's press release is available here:
