NJ's Bear Hunt Count Already at 441
According to a report on nbcnewyork.com/news/, New Jersey's black bear hunt (December 6-11 - the first in five years) which runs through Saturday, has already recorded 441 bears taken.
This is a record, but the state has an expected harvest of 500 to 700 for the week.
There have been protests by bear advocates every day of the hunt in the hope of shortening the length of the hunt or limit the bears taken.
