US Senators Robert Torricelli and Raymond Lesniak were spotted supporting animal lovers in New Jersey protesting the bear hunt that has killed over 600 bears. The bear movement is growing with thousands of animal activists responding to the bear hunt with petitions, advocacy and protests. Here are some of the pictures found on social media.
The arrival of these senators have been a refreshing wind to many as it is a sign that our calls for justice have been heard by people at the political level.
While many of us are not located in New Jersey we can help stoke the anti-bear-hunt movement by supporting the protesters by sharing these news and helping out with costs associated with advocacy.
