Illegal immigrant free-loading Democrat bears in New Jersey. What would be the odds?

A relative who is a naturalist with the NJ Division of Fish & Wlldlife, comments:

"The vid of the bears in the pool is getting a lot of press. We've had plenty of other similar videos - bears in pools, bears in hammocks, bears opening refrigerators, etc. If these people were smart they would have chased them away since they now are likely to come back for another dip. And momma bear is teaching her young that to cool off, just go to the 'hood and find a pool to chill out in. To me the most remarkable aspect is that there are 5 cubs. Whereas 2 is the norm for most of the country, in NJ we average around 3/litter, hence the population growth. Four is not uncommon, but five is still a bit out of the norm here. Shows how healthy the bears are and how rich the habitat is for them. Of course, they get a lot of supplemental (e.g. human) food by way of trash.

"They are neat animals, but I prefer them in the woods, not someone's yard."

You totally have it Stu Tarlowe. Living here in the San Juan Mtn. Range of SW CO, black bears often have two cubs and sometimes three. Seeing those five does indicate a plentiful food source. No one around here feed bears or have garbage available for their pickings. We used to have black bears visit our property daily because it was previously abandoned due to foreclosure. After the second year of our human presence on the property, they avoid us. Great to see them, really, but prefer when they have elsewhere to stock up for their hibernation diet. Nice to read what you wrote.

NJ is expanding the bear hunt this year. Bears are now found in most of the state.

When I was a kid, there was a less than 100 bears in the entire state. Now there are thousands.
