Animal rights advocates ask court to halt bear hunt

TRENTON - Animal rights advocates want three New Jersey judges to pull the plug on the state's planned bear hunt. Today, advocates both for and against the hunt made their case in a Trenton courtroom. Supporters say data shows the hunt is a successful way to control the bear population while providing valuable scientific information. Opponents say the hunt is based on rigged science and is nothing more than a political thank you to hunters for supporting Gov. Chris Christie (R-N.J.) during his election campaign. While there is no timetable for the judges to return a ruling, the clock is ticking. The hunt is scheduled for Dec. 5 - Dec. 10. Activists: Stop black bear hunt before it starts
