A bad week for bears

From the Post

New Jersey will hold a black-bear hunt this year as part of a newly approved plan to manage the animals. Released yesterday, the plan states that a six-day hunt, similar to one that took place in 2003, should occur next month.

From the Sun Times:

Grizzly bears in and around Yellowstone National Park should be removed from the endangered species list after 30 years of federal protection, the Interior Department said Tuesday.

From the Thunder Bay paper

The two Thunder Bay [Canada] area MPP's have both come out strongly in support of a call to reinstate the spring bear hunt.
