Stop The Bear Hunt Save the bears !!!

The Problem?

The Problem:Innocent animals are being killed for the wrong reasons. They have to suffer so humans have a trophy to show off. You learn in school about how it helps overpopulation but even if overpopulation happened to the bears, nature would work to regulate the population. Starvation and disease are tragic, but they are nature’s way of ensuring that the healthy, strong animals survive. So since we got rid of the only argument that hunters have let's get into more reasons why we should stop the bear hunt

Research:

It is all money driven. Forty percent of hunters also kill and injure millions of animals on public land every year. Most federal and state agencies that manage wildlife refuges, national forests, state parks, and other public lands are partially funded by hunting and fishing activities, so agency employees often go out of their way to encourage hunting rather than regulating or policing it. Hunters have a choice. With all the fruits, vegetables and grains that are cheaply available everywhere, there is no reason to kill animals to survive. Many animals endure prolonged, painful deaths when they are injured but not killed by hunters. Do you really want to be a reason for an animals suffering all day long? http://www.peta2.com/blog/hunting-facts/

Hunting also disrupts migration and hibernation patterns and destroys families. Like humans animals have families too so why kill a cubs mom or dad for your entertainment? Go play a sport or join a club! You do not have to kill things to make yourself happy! You can keep busy by doing that. Stop the bear hunt and educate yourself before you make your decision. http://www.peta2.com/blog/hunting-facts/

There are a lot of laws surrounding bear hunting, but here are the most important:

The black bear hunting season consists of two separate segments, A and B.

One bear per hunter during Segment A

One bear of either sex and any age may be killed per permit, but only one bear may be killed per segment, regardless of the number of permits the hunter holds.

It is unlawful to take or attempt to take or continue to hunt for more than the number of black bear permitted.

If no bear is taken during Segment A, the permit(s) is still valid for hunting in Segment B. If a hunter harvests a bear during Segment A, that permit is no longer valid.

Firearm black bear hunters must wear a hat of solid fluorescent hunter orange or an outer garment containing at least 200 square inches of fluorescent orange material visible from all sides at all times while bear hunting .

It is illegal to use dogs to pursue or run black bears .

Good Websites to use are http://www.savenjbears.com/ also http://www.nj.com/ They talk about the bear hunt in new jersey

http://www.nj.com/hudson/index.ssf/2016/12/poll_are_you_in_favor_of_bear_hunts_in_new_jersey.html

This link has a poll where you can vote if you agree with the bear hunt in New Jersey. So far 22,691 votes are in against bear hunting while 19,007 are for it

This shows that most hunting is near us so we should start the cause up here where it matters the most!

The interview sadly didn't go through, but you can look up bear hunt information at http://www.savenjbears.com/

You can contact any of these people to end the bear hunt

:Chris Christie: Governor Chris Christie PO Box 001, Trenton, NJ 08625

Legislators: Office of Legislative Services Office of Public Information Room 50 State House Annex P.O. Box 068 Trenton, NJ 08625-0068 Phone: 609-847-3905 Toll Free: 800-792-8630

New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection- 401 E. State St. 7th Floor, East Wing P.O. Box 40 Trenton, NJ 08625-0402

NJ Division of Fish and Wildlife - State of New Jersey, 1996-2016 P.O. Box 402 Trenton NJ 08625-0402

The Plan:

It will take around a year to complete this plan. We would try to take action now and hopefully next bear season it will be illegal.

First Step: Start Protests and show that people care.

Step Two: Talk to local government in your area and try to spread the word.

Step Three: Finally go to state officials Like Chris Christie

If you are unable to contact him keep trying! Send letters and call until he finally agrees to meet with you

The bad thing about this is that it could take awhile and may not work for a long time. It could take 3 years-10 years. It could even go longer.

The good thing about this plan is it will be heard by all the people that it will matter to non stop if we keep up the plan which means this has to work eventually.

Cost: Maybe a couple thousand because you would need more enforcement to keep an eye on people to make sure they don’t hunt them. Also you would want to keep track of the bears and make data of how the environment, animals, and people are affected
