Grizzly Bear Hunt in Rocky Mountains Under Consideration

Posted on: December 8th, 2012

Federal authorities are considering allowing a hunt for grizzly bears in the Rocky Mountains within the vicinity of Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks as early as 2014–possibly the closest the animal has come to being legally hunted in the lower 48 States in more than 30 years.

Federal officials are discussing plans to remove threatened species protection for the bears and transfer management authority to state agencies. The grizzly bear was listed as threatened in 1975 in the contiguous United States. Since then, the government has spent more than $20 million on grizzly bear restoration efforts, according to the Associated Press (AP). It is still legal to hunt grizzlies in Alaska and Canada.

Officials stress that the bear hunt, which would first take effect in Yellowstone and only later in Glacier national park, will be a strictly limited hunt.
