Grizzly Bear Hunting Proposal Considered in the Lower 48

The Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee, a group that includes representatives of five federal agencies, four states and the Canadian government, announced last week Thursday that they have decided upon a plan that would allow grizzles to be hunted in Montana, Wyoming, and Idaho once they are removed from the threatened list.

There are about 600 grizzles in and around Yellowstone National Park come and roughly 1,000 grizzlies in an area centered on Glacier National Park. Regulated hunting could begin in the next few years. The IGBC said that hunting would minimize conflicts between bears and humans, mainly ranchers whose stock has taken a hit in recent years.

But while hunters and ranchers are excited at the proposition of grizzly hunting, some are not.
