JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming wildlife managers are hosting a circuit of meetings around the state to talk about management of grizzly bears.

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department recently gained authority over the state’s grizzlies.

The meetings aren’t designed to set policies, such as hunting regulations. They’ll simply be for members of the public to share their feelings on the state’s grizzly management.

The state’s large carnivore supervisor, Dan Thompson, says he realizes hunting is a part of management, be he says he doesn’t want the meetings to be solely about hunting.

There is no current grizzly hunting season in Wyoming.

Grizzly bears became state-managed earlier this summer after 40 years of being under federal jurisdiction and the protection of the Endangered Species Act.
