As New Jersey's fourth consecutive bear hunt begins Monday, state game officials say the hunts have helped stabilize a growing population and seem to be culling the most troublesome bears. Animal protection groups, however, continue to question the accuracy of the department's data and have not quelled their criticism of the six-day hunt, or the practice of bear-baiting. The hunt, which begins before dawn, will take place in parts of Sussex, Warren, Morris, Bergen, Somerset, and Hunterdon Counties.

Gov. Corzine says he is not sure whether hunting helps control the state's thriving black-bear population. As a result, he has not signed off on regulations authorizing the state's third bear hunt in 35 years. "There's no evidence this has been a good control device," Corzine said. "I haven't seen anything that changes my mind on this. " Some lawmakers, however, say the governor is jeopardizing the state's residents. Yesterday, Sens. Robert Littell and Anthony Bucco and Assemblywoman Alison Littell McHose, all Republicans who represent sections of northwestern New Jersey, blasted Corzine for his inaction.
