Senate Bill S2750 (Senator Ray Lesniak) and A4407 (Assemblyman Daniel Benson) in New Jersey would ban the manufacture, sale, possession, importation, transportation, or use of any trap that is a spring-loaded device that restrains an animal by capturing the foot, leg, or other body part, including an enclosed foothold type trap or any other type trap that uses a jaw, arm, bar, cable, or wire to grasp or pin the animal’s foot, leg, or other body part.

BEAR HUNTS:

  1. DO NOTHING TO PROTECT PUBLIC SAFETY

  2. DO NOTHING TO PREVENT INCIDENCES AND COMPLAINTS

  3. ARE RECREATIONAL TROPHY HUNTS

Governor Christie, New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife, New Jersey Fish and Game Council, and bear hunters should be held liable for any incidences involving black bears because they have failed to support and implement Bear Smart initiatives.

WHAT WORKS:

  1. PUBLIC EDUCATION - PEOPLE NEED TO KNOW HOW TO BEHAVE RESPONSIBLY IN BEAR HABITAT. 

  2. GARBAGE CONTAINMENT

  3. ATTRACTANT CONTROL
