The lawsuit to stop the annual hunting of black bears in New Jersey ends at the top. The New Jersey Supreme Court today denied the action, but advocates say they’re not finished.

The Animal Protection League of New Jersey and the Bear Education and Resource Group brought the action after officials in the Department of Environmental Protection’s Division of Fish and Wildlife deemed an annual hunt necessary to contain the bear population.

During last December’s six-day hunt, 469 bears were killed.

An attorney for the groups says that they will lobby legislators and local officials to change the policy.
