Game Code Amendments Comment Period
Send YOUR COMMENTS now, the antis are!
Trenton, NJ -(AmmoLand.com)- Don’t allow emotional thinking and senseless ideology to be used as the basis for managing New Jersey’s natural resources.
ATTENTION CONSERVATIONISTS: New Jersey Sierra Club, an organization that has publicly aligned itself with extremist animal rights factions in NJ has created an “Action Alert” site to encourage activists –around the world – to comment against the NJ DEP science-based policy allowing an additional week of bear hunting to manage New Jersey’s expanding black bear population for purposes of public safety and to regulate cultural carrying capacity.
These activists do so without regard to last year’s deadly mauling of Rutgers student, Darsh Patel, and this year’s black bear biting of Officer Walter Michalski. Animal activists are prioritizing their personal agenda over public safety and ultimately the welfare of black bears.
NJOA has been a strong supporter of science-based conservation efforts to manage game populations. We encourage all New Jerseyans to do the same by commenting in support of the proposed game code amendments.
Don’t allow New Jersey’s natural resources to be managed by emotional thinking and senseless ideology.
Submit your comments at the NJ DEP site at the link the follows by July 17th.
Below are excerpts from the NJ Sierra action alert.
“Help stop this expansion by telling the DEP that we need better bear management, NOT more bear hunting!”
“New Jersey Sierra Club believes, as always, that these hunts are unwarranted, unfounded, and will not help to manage bears in the state of New Jersey. Taking twice as many bears is not the answer and will not reduce human-bear conflicts.”
“We oppose this hunt and instead advocate for a useful bear management plan that will include public education on bear interactions including garbage disposal and protecting habitat.”
