From the New Jersey Herald:

_While he called it a “real and present issue,” Gov. Jon Corzine said Friday there probably won’t be a change in the state policy that prohibits a black bear hunt.

Corzine said the number of black bears was only a problem “if you want to call it that . . . .

A lot of the problem is perception,” he said. “There are less intrusions” and most complaints are simply sightings and confined to a small part of 
the state.

Figures released last month, however, showed the number of serious incidents involving bears were about double this year than what they were last year._

Now that we understand that state’s black bear population is only a problem “if you want to call it that,” the question is: Do you want to call it that? And what do you want to call Gov. Corzine?
