is dedicated to the bear population of Northern New Jersey, especially those in Sparta. It is here so people can see some great close-up pictures of the most beautiful animals in NJ.

The owner of this site DOES NOT AGREE with the bear-hunt. It is unnecessary!!! We do not condemn hunting, but lets limit it to the [out of control] deer population, turkey, etc., there is no need to kill these beautiful bears, you do not need to eat a bear for dinner - they are EASY to live with, they do not bother anyone that doesn’t bother them. A recently killed dog here in Sparta is unfortunate, but dogs, bears, deer, turkey, your cat, are all ANIMALS, and will act as such. We feel for the family that lost their dog, we fear our cat will run after them, but that does not mean the bears should be killed
