NJ Governor John Corzine stops annual bear hunt


The New York Post
October 28, 2006

Gov. Jon Corzine said yesterday that he remained unconvinced that a bear hunt helps control the animals, signaling he won't approve a hunt this year and incensing lawmakers from northwestern New Jersey.

Corzine has until Monday to readopt regulations authorizing a Dec. 4-9 bear hunt in the state's northwestern region.

"There's no evidence this has been a good control device," Corzine said. "I haven't seen anything that changes my mind on this."

Hunt supporters disagree, saying bears have been sighted in family yards, on porches and beside children's swing sets.
