Police think bear paws-ed first in Union
It may have cracked window of dry cleaners before traveling 10 miles farther to Colonia

In the hours before it became the talk of Woodbridge on Saturday, a young black bear left its imprint in another busy community in neighboring Union County.

Parsippany police decided it was a good idea to condition this bear with some rubber buckshot. I guess they didn't realize the bear really should be somewhat close to the woods when they do that...

They shot and the bear ran up a tree. At that point they decided it was best to call people who knew what they were doing.

I would have called the Bear Group! They know what they are doing! LOL! Maybe one of them could have given the cute little guy a ride back to the woods in thier mini van! Oh .. I'm sorry... I forgot... They don't actually do anything for the bears they just criticize what everyone else is doing...
This is probably one of those bears that they say the F&W lets loose in populated areas so we can have another bear hunt![mad];):D
I can't believe how many bears are making the news these days! You know the bear friendly people aren't reporting anything so there are a lot more things going on then are even being reported! It's really pretty bad this year! This has to open some peoples eyes to how bad this situation really is! What is it going to take to make the DEP realize that there are plenty of bears (too many bears) to warrent a hunt!

POSSIBLY THE RAHWAY RIVER WHICH RUNS THRU UNION, SPRINGFIELD, KENILROWRTH, CRANFORD, RAHWAY, CLARK AND COLONIA!! WOW BEAR MAY HAVE BEEN IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD OF KENILWORTH!!! I OFTEN RUN OR RIDE MY BIKE NEAR THE OLD SHOOTING RANGE IN KENILWORTH/CRANFORD AND THERE ARE SOME DECENT WOOD BACK THERE AND I WOULD NOT BE SURPRISED IF A BEAR TRAVELED THROUGH THE WATCHUNG MOUNTAINS AND INTO THAT AREA!! THERE ARE PLENTY OF HUGE!! DEER AND AN ABUNDANCE OF TURKEYS ALREADY IN THE AREA!! I LOVE WAKING UP AT 4 00 AM LEAVING MY HOUSE TO TAKE MY 1 HR TRIP TO WARREN CTY AND LESS THAN 100 YARDS FROM MY HOUSE SEEING BUCKS GRAVING ON GR [no swearing please] OR CROSSING INFRONT OF MY TRUCK!

Biggest buck I have seen in a while hung out all last year, till the rut started right there on Westfield Ave. Exit 137 He finally move over to the Golf course in Kenilworth, but I would still see him some nights by 137. He got killed in January on the South bound side of the Parkway about 250 yards from exit 137, whole head was gone. Bowhuntercop, check around with your buddies in Rahway, Linden, Roselle or Roselle Park, like to find out who has that head LOL. I have pictures of that buck.

THERE WERE 3 HUGE BUCKS IN GALLOPING HILL GOLF COURSE AND I WAS WITHIN 10 FT OF THEM AT THE KENILWORTH WATER TOWER - I WOULD GO THERE ALMOST EVERY NIGHT BUT BY THE TIME THEY CAME OUT IT WAS TO DARK FOR PICS - I TOOK PHOTOS OF A BACK IN THE GOLF COURSE LAST YR THAT WOULD HANG OUT ALONG PARKWAY AND I BELIEVE HE WAS SAME ONE THAT I SAW AT THE WATER TOWER

I SAW THE BUCK AT EXIT 137 BUT IT WAS NOT THE MONSTER THAT I SAW IN THE GOLF COURSE- IT WAS A NICE BUCK BUT THE BIG ONE- I WAS GOING TO GO BACK AND TAKE THE HEAD BUT WAS GONE THE NEXT DAY
