Wyoming Governor Asks Feds To Delist Grizzlies
Governor Matt Mead is asking the Secretary of the Interior to remove grizzly bears from the endangered species list. Secretary Sally Jewell wrote to Governor Mead in late 2013 saying she expected to make a decision in early 2014 and take final action this year.
“The recovery of grizzly bears in the Yellowstone Ecosystem is a conservation success story of our time, The State of Wyoming has managed grizzly bears under federal control responsibly for years at significant cost. There is no reason to wait to remove federal protections and return control of grizzly bears to the states.”
