New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said he would listen to recommendations if state officials determine the bear hunt should be cut short.
According to a NJ.com article, Christie floated the idea at a press conference, saying if the hunt outpaces expectations, he would consider cutting it short. He said the recommendation would have to come from Fish and Wildlife officials and have a scientific basis.
The bear hunt is in its second day and more than 260 bears were killed the first day, drawing heated criticism and threats of legal action from animal-protection groups.
