The numbers of grizzly bears is stabilizing in and around Yellowstone National Park. In a meeting with state and federal agencies Wednesday, officials said there are about 1,000 grizzlies in the Yellowstone region. Twenty bears have been killed or removed from the region this year, according to the Associated Press. In 2012, 59 were killed or removed from the area. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is considering lifting the grizzlies’ protected status, which would open up a limited amount of hunting for grizzlies in Wyoming, Montana and Idaho.
