BLOOMINGDALE, N.J. — A beloved upright bear who lately has been spotted in parts of northern Passaic and Bergen counties was killed in the North Jersey Bow Hunt, a Facebook group devoted to "Pedals" announced Friday.

More than 40,000 signatures had been collected by Bloomingdale's Lisa Rose-Rublack, who recently launched a petition to relocate the injured bear to a wildlife sanctuary.

Last week, legislation advanced through the New Jersey Assembly to remove black bears from the list of gaming animals.

Bergen County Assemblyman Tim Eustace is among the four lawmakers who hope to stop the hunting of black bears.
