Comment Period Extended For Bear Plan

September 10, 2013 Greater Yellowstone, Paradise Valley, State of Montana No Comments
MT FWP

Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks has extended comment through the end of the month on the draft of an updated conservation and management plan for grizzly bears in southwestern Montana adjacent Yellowstone National Park. The draft plan, developed over the past year in conjunction with a programmatic environmental impact statement, addresses state management options once the area’s more than 700 grizzly bears are removed from the federal list of threatened species. Among the issues considered in the EIS are population monitoring, habitat management, nuisance grizzly bear management, future distribution and the potential for grizzly bear hunting. Fish Wildlife and Parks held open houses last month in Bozeman, Helena and Billings to discuss and examine the draft plan. The comment period was to end September 16 but Fish Wildlife and Parks extended the comment period to September 30 in response to requests for more time to examine the document.
