States May Allow Hunting of Yellowstone Grizzlies


The U.S Interior Department has announced that it will not restore federal protections for Grizzly Bears around Yellowstone National Park. This decision comes after a court ruling questioned the federal government turning bear population management to the states. Wyoming and Idaho have both proposed allowing hunts. Yellowstone’s grizzly bears were removed from the endangered species list in 2017. The Grizzly population grew from 136, when it was a threatened species in 1975, to 700 today. Conservationists worry delisting the bear will lead to its decline. They also point out that climate change induced fluctuations will leave the future of the bears uncertain. Federal protections will be of critical importance as food sources and suitable habitat shift. https://ift.tt/2HBKoBu http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com
