On August 5, 2011, the young 102 lb male bear falsely accused of attacking two children in Stokes State Forest was killed by the New Jersey Division of Fish & Wildlife.

The video shows a representative of the New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife fomenting anti-bear hysteria -- before the real facts, which exonerated the bear, were released. Despite the bear's innocence, NJ-DFW made a point of chasing, harassing, and killing the bear. Unfortunately, this is DFW standard operating procedure.

DFW sent out a press release correcting the record, but used the opportunity to slander the bear again, and promote its agenda to expand bear hunting. The Stokes State bear incident illuminates DFW corruption at the highest level.

We know how quick the press is to sensationalize any incident involving bears. This was no different. After Newton hospital officials told the media the boy's injuries were not caused by a bear attack, public sentiment was GREATLY in favor of letting the bear live.

Black bears have an incredible safety record in the state. No fatalities have ever been recorded in the history of New Jersey. The often cited 1852 incident occurred in Arkansas, not in New Jersey.

The majority of NJ residents are AGAINST bear hunting and want humane methods of dealing with human/bear interactions.

This video is dedicated to the memory of this young bear. Please forward this video to all and sundry.
