New Jersey Bear Hunt Under Attack!

Friday, October 27, 2006

 

Please Contact Governor Corzine and the DEP Commissioner Today



Showing complete disregard for public safety and proven game management practices, anti-hunting extremists are mounting an aggressive campaign demanding that Governor Jon Corzine (D) block a 2006 bear hunt in New Jersey.

 

Banned for 33 years, bear hunting in New Jersey resumed on a limited basis in 2003 and 2005 in response to a bear overpopulation crisis that threatened public safety and resulted in a rash of terrifying bear attacks on humans in the Garden State.  

 

Despite these limited hunts, bear-human confrontations remain at unacceptably high levels, and bear sightings have been recorded in each of New Jersey's 21 counties. An ongoing program of responsible, limited bear hunting is the only available tool that will immediately reduce the bear population to the levels necessary to ensure public safety. 

 

During intense grilling by New Jersey's Supreme Court during the anti-hunt extremists' failed attempt to stop the 2005 hunt, even their lawyer was forced to admit that limited hunting is a viable option to control bear population, contradicting his clients' longstanding, false position that New Jersey's bear hunt was nothing more than a trophy hunt.

 

Please contact Governor Jon Corzine and New Jersey DEP Commissioner Lisa P. Jackson today and express your support for a 2006 black bear hunting season, as part of New Jersey's comprehensive bear management policy.  Your personal safety and sporting heritage cannot be left in the hands of anti-hunting extremists!  Act today!

 

Governor Corzine can be reached by phone at (609) 292-6000, (856) 614-3200, or (973) 648-2640, fax (609) 292-3454, via email at http://www.state.nj.us/governor/govmail.html, or send a letter to:
