USFWS Grizzly Delist Appeal

Western-Bear-Foundation-Logo-250

The USFWS lost its appeal to delist the GYE grizz in 9th Circuit. I have also attached a court doc. This is disappointing news, we somewhat expected it but had held out hopes the efforts of all involved on the grizzly recovery would have their work deemed successful.

In essence the 3 judge panel upheld Judge Christensen’s opinion that grizzly bears in the GYE stay listed. This was a bunch of plaintiff’s against FWS but Wyoming, Montana, Idaho and others were intervenors as well and did put together a lot of information as to why grizzly bears should be delisted, there were 3 primary points of contention:

Grizzly Hunt Rule in Montana

Western-Bear-Foundation-LogoJust an update quickly on the recent ruling by the Montana Commissioners to not enact a hunting season for grizzly bears this year.

We actively supported the idea of having a hunting season for grizzly bears in Montana this year. Due to the recent delisting and movement of control into state hands there was an opportunity for Montana to have such a season. We sent letters to commission and worked with other stakeholders to try and influence a decision but as many of you heard that was a futile effort as the commission voted unanimously against a season. Where were a little frustrated at the process as the Director of Montana FWP came out before the ruling stating there will be no hunting of grizzly bears in Montana in 2018. This all came out by her prior to the vote by the commission who is the only authority to in the state to decide on such a hunt. It was handled poorly to say the least. [Read more…]
