FREDON — One protester was arrested at the Whittingham Wildlife
Management Area today as New Jersey's first bear hunt in five years started.

Bill Craine, a New York resident who said he was a professor of
psychology at the City University of New York said, "We have to respect
their right to live," as he was handcuffed and moved into a State Police
vehicle. Craine was arrested after repeatedly refusing to leave a
restricted area.

Another protester, Angie Metler of the Animal Protection League of New
Jersey in Englishtown said. "We're here to educate the public and
document this slaughter, she said. "Bill was practicing civil
disobedience. We're very proud of him."

Metler and Craine were among a group of fewer than two dozen
demonstrators on hand in Fredon. A half-dozen troopers were also present
to maintain order.

At least 40 bears have been killed statewide in the first hours of the
hunt. New Jersey officials expect 300 to 400 bears to be killed during
the six-day hunt, which began at 7 a.m. today.......
