Gov. Mead Seeks Grizzly Delisting

Governor Matt Mead

Governor Matt Mead is asking Secretary of the Interior, Ken Salazar, to work with Wyoming to remove the grizzly bear from the Endangered Species List sooner than currently anticipated. Mead says delisting by the federal government appears to be at least two years away because an evaluation of data related to white bark pine is starting and is expected to take that long. Mead says he says there’s an urgency to the situation with four human deaths over the past two years.  He adds that Wyoming pays significantly to fund the management of grizzly bears.  That, he says averages about $2-million a year. Governor Mead thanked the Secretary for his work on wolves and sage-grouse and said he hoped the two could continue their cooperative relationship with regard to the grizzly bear.
