New Jersey, Belmar -( The backlash to a science based decision to manage a burgeoning black bear population in New Jersey by means of hunting is growing. It’s happening in various factions and the world is weighing in.

Sierra Club (North Jersey Group) invited the Director of Bear Education and Resource (BEAR) Group to present to its members. It should be noted that this group in headed by an animal rights activist without any apparent credentials in the filed of biology, wildlife management or conservation. In fact, the underlying motive of the group is to champion for “rights” for animals – not environmental stewardship.

The individuals associated with B.E.A.R. Group work closely with Humane Society of United States and some are officers of the New Jersey Animal Rights Alliance (now Animal Protection League of NJ.) Many of you have seen evidence of the support that Animal Protection League of NJ has given to those who commit domestic acts of terrorism.

It appears there is a blurring of environmentalism and animal extremism taking place in NJ and it is bearing down on the political landscape.

These groups are also turning to the outside world to provide assistance in challenging sound public policy in New Jersey. A petition is being circled world-wide to prevent game management and sound public policy (bear hunt) from occurring. Below you’ll find a sampling from a petition. Please note where the petitioners live.
