N.J. bear sightings doubled over '04
As development, mating bring out more in Morris, many migrating southward

By Rob Seman, Daily Record

Even female bears need a little privacy, but in coming weeks humans might be getting a little less of it, state wildlife officials said.

It's mating season, and as female bears begin pushing their young out of their dens in order to mate, state wildlife officials warn that the year-old male bears may become more visible in people's backyards.

Last year Ontario spent more than $5.3million on bear over population problems that resulted from the cancellation of spring hunting. New Jersey sportsman are paying for problems caused by bears in our state. Everytime a problem arises with a bear, it's not the general taxpayer who foots the bill, it's hunters and anglers, which is why the Division of Fish and Wildlife is going broke!!![down][mad]

It is very interesting that Fish Game and Wildlife was competent enough to oversee the bear comeback in this state all these years, and they are competent enough to manage troublesome bears, but when it comes to controlling their numbers via a hunt then all of a sudden they are not competent and must go back to the drawing board and come up with a management plan. [confused]
