37. I shot a bear once
Afterward I felt really crappy about it. That bear wasn't bothering me, I went into his neighborhood and shot him for basically no reason other than that I could. I've never hunted bear since.

That said, I can understand the motivation behind the NJ bear hunts. It appears that the bear/human interface there has moved into the human's neighborhood. If I woke up every morning to see bears rummaging through my garbage cans I'd be concerned. We've lost cats, dogs chickens and even lambs to coyotes and I have no qualms about eliminating them. I'd probably feel the same about a bear.
