The wounding and crippling of wild animals is an integral aspect of hunting. Every year in New Jersey, tens of thousands of animals are shot, wounded, and either suffer slow painful deaths or are forced to live with horrifying injuries. In the following photo galleries, you will be witness to just two victims of the tragedy that is hunting: A bear shot in the back during New Jersey's first hunt in 33 years, and a NJ deer shot in the back by a bowhunter - the arrow still protruding from the wound. Remember these poor creatures, for they are the embodiment of the greater unseen atrocities committed by those who take pleasure from the hunting of wild animals.
