No Teddy Bear's Picnic Saturday in New Jersey

If you go out in the woods tomorrow
you'd better not go alone....

The last day of New Jersey's first bear hunt in five years is pointing toward a showdown of sorts between hunters and protesters, reports NBC New York's Brian Thompson.

"The four-day total through Thursday of bagged bears was 477, with just 36 bears killed by hunters on the fourth day. But NJ DEP spokesman Larry Ragonese is predicting that hunters will be out in force on Saturday, the last day, since it is the only weekend day of the hunt. And bear advocates also plan to be out en masse. On Thursday, they won a deal brokered by Supreme Court Justice Barry Albin that will allow as many as 100 protesters at one of the five check-in stations Saturday."
