Actress and animal rights activist Brigitte Bardot is outraged with the New Jersey bear hunt that she has called “scandalous carnage.”

According to AFP, Bardot wrote a letter to Governor Chris Christie about the annual hunt, which this year has resulted in the death of 464 bears. She told Christie that the bear hunt “tarnishes the image of your state.” Last year, even more bears were killed, a total of 592. Bardot wrote, “What can we think about the state of New Jersey where 592 bears are condemned to death?”

The hunt takes places over six days each year in New Jersey, with claims that it is required to control the state’s bear population and avoid confrontations between bears and humans. Individuals and animal organizations are taking a stand along with Bardot.

According to the LA Times, the Animal Protection League of New Jersey has been turned down for the right to protest at a weighing station used by many of the bear hunts, but vowed to protest anyway. Doris Lin, attorney for the organization, said “People are willing to get arrested to protest against this denial of their speech rights.”
