New Jersey Division of Fish & Wildlife Unveils New Logo

The New Jersey Division of Fish & Wildlife (DFW) proudly unveiled their new logo on Friday in front of a small group of people who enjoy killing stuff. The event took place at the Pequest Trout Hatchery.

Director Dave Chanda, in a powerpoint presentation, explained how the new logo is similar to the old one, but the new logo portrays wildlife — with regard to the DFW's role in hunting — more appropriately.

Said Chanda, "I really like the new logo. In the older, way less accurate logo, the animals seem calm, enjoying their natural surroundings...almost happy. But in this new version, these animals are more appropriately terrified."

Said Larry Herrighty, who's been with the DFW since the 1890s, "The new logo really conveys what this agency is all about. And the bullets holes going through the big "NJ"...it's dead-on."

Hunters in attendance also had good things to say. "I never really got why there was an eagle in the old logo," said one, "Because the one time I shot an eagle, I caught hell for it."

Anti-hunters who showed up to protest the unveiling didn't know what to say. 

"This might be the first time we actually agree with the Division...on anything," said one animal protection advocate, stunned. Turning to walk away, she added, "Ever."
