I realize I'm rehashing one of my old threads on this, but in the past few days, the bear hunt in NJ has gotten loco. While I have read about an incident some yrs ago about a baby and a bear, when was the actual last time anyone has read about anyone being attacked in NJ? On an average, the typical NJ brown/black bear can attain the size roughly of maybe a saint bernard, and weigh in at least 475 lbs, which is pretty much lightweight for the species. So what's your opinion once again on this subject, ladies and gentlemen? Do the bears really need to be hunted down so aggressively or is this quite literally a case of overkill?
