    Black bear kills a man in NJ

    I know these woods intimately, having grown up hunting, fishing and trapping them and even helping preserve them back in the '70s. What the story doesn't say is that the county of Passaic owns the land and does not allow hunting of any kind, including for black bears. This is "ground zero" for NJ's black bear population. What a shame for this young man and his loved ones.

    Re: Black bear kills a man in NJ

    I found out this morning. I live directly north in warwick. There has been ALOT of bear activity in my town alone. Lots of people hitting bears.

    I'm going to attribute it to the dry summer, a harsh winter and the quickly setting in cold.

    Poor guy.

    "They became frightened and attempted to flee the area," said West Milford police Lt. Keith Ricciardi in the release. "During the confusion the group became separated as they ran in different directions."

    Just backs up the old saying... You don't have to outrun the bear...

    Those five should have stuck together.

    It wouldn't surprise me if the authorities find out that food was being carried by one or more of the hikers. That's purely speculation by me right now, but it explains the following behavior the survivors spoke of. Then once they ran, that triggered a predatory response from what is now being described as a 300 (299) lb. 4 year old boar.

    Studies have shown bears are angered by the smell of curry. Fearing it will smell it again, the bear lashed out in a fit of anger. I would have done the same.

    I wish your mother could have a retroactive abortion.

    Btw, how were your grades in science class? Your hypothesis are great and if confuses me as to why Al Gore hasn't reached out to you to head his marketing campaign.

    This bear attack happened nowhere near Warwick.

    Roll up the windows Brian, you're letting the stank out.

    Im going to attribute it to too many bears for the land to support due to the "all animals are cuddly and cute" population crying out in anguish not to hunt them.

    Re: Black bear kills a man in NJ

    I'm pretty shocked by this. I've spent alot of time in that preserve myself, hiking and fishing a little wts that runs through it. Many times alone and into sunset. There are definitely a ton of bears in the area but I never really believed they were a threat to a grown man. Definitely a wake up call.

    Why run? No bear is attacking a group of 5 guys..

    If I didn't drink a half a bottle of whiskey on Saturday night I would of been hiking the apshawa reserve yesterday afternoon. My friend even came over and tried to get me off my ass to go hiking. Instead, I convinced him to go to the bar, eat fried food and get drunk again. My alcohol binge may of saved my life!!
