N.J. authorizes hunting of black bears

Published 08/04/10

Once again the overpopulation excuse is provided for allowing the hunt; this time for black bears in New Jersey. As we know, the biological truth is that animals regulate their own populations, based upon available food and habitat. In nature, unaltered by humans, there is no such thing as a "surplus" (or "game") animal. Feel free to let the Department of Environmental Protection commissioner Bob Martin, hear about your disappointment.

Born Free USA applauds New Mexico Gov. Richardson for ordering temporary trapping ban to protect the Mexican Grey Wolf

Published 08/03/10

The Mexican wolf is one of the most endangered animals in North America. The decline in Mexican wolf population has numerous causes, including targeted killing, disease and genetic problems. By their very design traps are inherently cruel and indiscriminate and pose serious risk to wildlife including threatened and endangered species. This ban although temporary, will go far in protecting the Mexican Grey wolf and will hopefully lead to a permanent trapping ban in wolf territory.
