Governor Matt Mead says he is looking forward to the de-listing of the Grizzly Bear next year as recommended by the Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee this month.  The committee agreed with a report by researchers that the numbers of the species in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem had recovered sufficiently and the food supplies were adequate to support such a de-listing from protection under the Endangered Species Act.  Mead says the state will anxiously and we’ll continue to monitor that issue. During his news conference just before Christmas, Mead told reporters the second successful season for the state managing the wolf population was coming to an end with only 36 wolves being killed as predators and 21 out of the quota of 26 trophy animals had been harvested.
