Yesterday around 1:00pm, driving up rt 23 going to the Home Cheapo, I came across a bunch of people standing near a guardrail on the side of the highway(rt 23. A better look and realized that it was a bear, at first I thought it had just been hit, but after stopping and snapping a few pics I could see that it had been dead fo some time. What a shame. It would look better in a roasting pan and on the wall then next to a guardrail.

Euthanization by automobile is part of Stuttering Jon's and the NJDEP's Comprehensive Bear Management Plan.

This is the 5th one I know about on 23. It will get to the point where bears are doing more damage to cars then deer. Once insurance companies start paying out more claims for damage due to bears then we may see some changes...

If that one is the same one I saw it was getting into a lot of garbage and just making a mess. Also in pompton they have a bear that was shot with rubber bullets and has been deemed a category 1 bear.
