State Reacts to Bear Ruling

Court1

Reaction to the decision by 9th District Court in Montana to retain the grizzly bear protection under the Endangered Species act has been quick in coming.  While a number of environmental groups celebrated the decision, Governor Matt Mead and other officials in Wyoming say they’re disappointed with the ruling. But representatives of the state are not the only ones unhappy with the ruling.  Tom France, regional executive director of the Northern Rockies Regional Center for the National Wildlife Federation says while his organization respect5s the court’s decision and understands that it was reached after a thorough review, quoting France now, “we continue to believe that the Yellowstone grizzly has recovered and is a great Endangered Species Act success story.”  Governor Mead says Wyoming will evaluate its options over coming weeks including a possible appeal of the ruling to the United States Supreme Court.

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
