Bear Awareness Fact Sheet
New Jersey is home to all kinds of beautiful wildlife – including black bears.
Black bears are getting a lot of attention these days, for the wrong reasons. They're venturing too close to homes and into backyards, looking for food. Bears that look for food near your home or in your yard likely have learned bad habits from people who feed them intentionally, or unintentionally by carelessly leaving out food or garbage.

Bluetongue Virus found in Two Deers in New Jersey
The Department of Environmental Protection's Division of Fish and Wildlife has confirmed New Jersey's first cases of bluetongue virus in two deer.
The virus was confirmed in one deer that died in Basking Ridge, Somerset County on Sept. 4 and another that died in Stirling, Morris County on Sept. 19. The clinical signs of bluetongue are identical to epizootic hemorrhagic disease (EHD), which has occurred seven times in the state since 1995.
Utility Scam Update
We want to make you aware of a long-running, nationwide utility scam that is again being reported in New Jersey. The scam involves a caller posing as an electric company employee threatening to shut off power unless an immediate payment is made, using a pre-paid debit card such as a Green Dot card.
These pre-paid cards are available at convenience stores and drug stores, and customers can use them to pay bills or add money to online accounts. However, JCP&L does not endorse the use of Green Dot cards as a bill payment method.
If a customer receives a call from someone demanding payment of their electric bill by using a Green Dot card, they are being scammed and should report the crime to local authorities. Although our company representatives sometimes do call customers to remind them that a payment is past due, they explain how a payment can be made using one of the following established payment options:
Any customer who has doubts about a call from someone claiming to be from JCP&L, especially one demanding immediate payment, should call JCP&L's customer service number at 1-800-662-3115. For more information, visit www.firstenergycorp.com/paymentoptions.
