N.J. bear hunt

    The hunt goes on. Monday could mark the first bear hunt in New Jersey since 2005.

    State appellate judges ruled against a lawsuit on Friday to stop a six-day bear hunt that would control the population of black bears.

    The groups who filed the suit, the Animal Protection League of New Jersey and the Bear Education and Research Group have filed an appeal to the New Jersey state Supreme Court.
