N.J. bear season opens Monday, and animal rights groups will be ready

New Jersey's six-day black bear hunt begins Monday in four areas of what is known as "bear country," the northern parts of the state where black bears are most prevalent.

The hunting sections include Warren County and part of Hunterdon County. Sussex and parts of Somerset, Passaic and Bergen counties are also included. The season kicks off just as Pennsylvania's bear hunting window comes to a close.

"There's a place for bears in New Jersey," said Larry Ragonese, press director of the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection. "It's just not in your home."
