CBS: the 'threat' of bears

On tonight's local 6 o'clock news, CBS Channel 2 in NYC, they covered the effort to repeat the bear hunt in New Jersey.  News anchor Maurice Dubois closed the report by saying "The hunt was established to address the threat the bears are to humans."

A complaint to the news room received the response that Maurice Dubois was 'merely' reading from a teleprompter.

The bears are a threat mainly to garbage; I believe there isn't one recorded instance in NJ of a black bear attacking humans.  People and urban sprawl are far more of a threat to the bears.  

Please contact CBS news director Dianne Doctor via their website: click 'feedback' at the bottom of the page.
