So I guess we should start telling  people to not to live in NJ then ;

sniped from the division of fish and wildlife NJ website.

 ...Black bears are the largest land mammal in the Garden State and
live in forested areas throughout northern New Jersey. Here in the most
densely populated state in the nation black bears are thriving in close
proximity to people. 

Black bears are native to the state, but as land was cleared for
settlements, timber and farms, and bears were killed indiscriminately,
their numbers decreased and their range reduced to the most remote
areas in the northern part of the state. The population recovered after
being afforded the protection of game animal status and habitat
improved as forests matured. Today, New Jersey's black bear population
is increasing and expanding as is the number of conflicts between
humans and black bears...snip
