Good News for the Bears and the Deer --
- Friends of Deer,
Stuart Chaifetz has been acting out for animals in New Jersey for years.
Stu usually puts most of his efforts into the bears but here he speaks of
As expected, the hunters, furious that the Governor and Commissioner
of DEP cancelled the bear hunt, have sued to have the hunt reinstated.
Tonight their case was heard before a three judge panel. No decision
was made, but either way the case will most likely go to the state
supreme court. We are confident that the courts will uphold the DEP
Commissioner, and will keep you informed as soon as events unfold.
In the meantime, if you want to read the Commissioner's excellent
report that tore apart the bear management policy, you can download
it here - http://www.njfishandwildlife.com/bearseas06.htm - and here
We have good news to report for deer; the mayor and town council of
Shrewsbury (Monmouth County) met last night and passed a ban on
hunting within the town. This was a major blow to hunters, who
showed up in force, yet were completely outnumbered by local
residents who did not want them in their neighborhood. The best part
is that we had nothing to do with this; the hunters expended time and
energy and got their hats handed to them by average citizens whose
eyes have been opened to the truth. That's beautiful.
We've updated our website, so please visit us at
There is a great deal of information on the site you can use to fight
against hunting, including an archive of our letters to the editors
(with all the true stories of hunters killing and maiming animals)
and a new section titled "Special Investigative Reports." You'll also
be able to peruse our campaigns and press releases, and see just how
much we've accomplished in the nearly two years since we were formed.
I also suggest that you check out http://www.honorandnonviolence.com
(my personal site) which has a number of other reports dealing with
a variety of species that are hunted. For instance, did you know
that the US Fish and Wildlife Service created "resident" geese when
they bred geese as live targets for hunters? You'll find that and a
lot more on the site.
