The slaughter continues. Not terrible enough to begin with, New Jersey’s black bear hunt has been extended through this Saturday. That calls for the biggest protest yet – and with advance notice of a couple days, here are the specifics.
Please attend. Please protest. Please join the growing movement against the Division of Fish and Wildlife – otherwise known as “the DFW hunting club masquerading as a state agency.”
We will NOT be silent as the Division of Fish and Wildlife extends the bear hunt! (Dec. 13th - 16th)
PLEASE JOIN OUR LAST PROTEST OF THE YEAR!
WE will NOT be silent while DFW allows trophy hunters to slaughter even MORE bears, including mothers and their cubs!
We will NOT be silent as the DFW lies about public safety. This hunt is nothing but a bait and shoot trophy hunt.
Please continue to BE THEIR VOICE and attend our last protest of the year.
Saturday, December 16, 2017: 11 AM - 1 PM
Whittingham Wildlife Management Area, 150 Fredon Springdale Road, Fredon, New Jersey.
MAP Park in area behind protesters.
Please dress for cold weather.
Thank you to more than 100 protesters who came out on December 9th in the snow and frigid temperature. Thank you our special guests Lynda Smith (former Bear Group director and founder) and Brian Hackett (HSUS state director) who gave inspiring talks to the crowd.
The Bear Group will continue to work toward permanent black bear protection, but a coalition is forming to get rid of the DFW hunting club masquerading as a state agency. They extended the hunt, we expanded our mission. More to report in 2018.
