New Jersey Bear Attack Leaves 2 Injured

Troopers say the bear grabbed one juvenile out of a tent, causing a minor foot injury. It then swiped at another, causing a shoulder injury. Read more.

The lady that's in charge of the camp works with me and she told me that the kids tent was full of candy bars and chips hidden under the bottom of the tent.

Re: New Jersey Bear Attack Leaves 2 Injured

case closed. let it be known that a black bear has so regard for human safety and will remove any obstacle in its way to get to a simple candy bar. therefore, black bears, even acting in a non-predatory manner, are a significant danger to human life and limb.

Life's too short to hunt with an ugly dog.

Case closed, PGC should allow ANYONE who feels even remotely threated by a bear to kill it and ask questions later....

Re: New Jersey Bear Attack Leaves 2 Injured

the next time a bear is walking toward a child with a candy bar in its hands and an upstanding citizen bystander takes action, lets think back to this case and not have a 3 page discussion on whether or not he was justified. obviously, a bear that wants food is very capable of hurting somebody and will not hesistate to do so. If the question you want asked is, "Will this bear coming toward me attack me for my lunch?" then yeah I can only think of one way to get the answer and personally, i'd rather not wait to find out. hopefully, the PGC will do something a little more aggressive to stop feeding and take care of problem bears. if that happens, and every bear that associates humans with a food source is killed this hunting season, then I predict that question will not have to be asked very often.
