Lummis urges bear de-listing

/

Wyoming Senator Cynthia Lummis along with fellow Senators and Members of Congress from Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho, have sent a letter to Department of Interior Secretary Deb Haaland urging her to follow the science and support delisting grizzlies in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem and Northern Continental Divide. Lummis points out that in both areas, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has noted that the grizzly bear populations are at carrying capacity and are no longer endangered.

Lummis said, “The grizzly bear has recovered in significant areas of the west, including in Wyoming and the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. In these areas, the federal government needs to hand over population management to state wildlife managers. They know the area, and they know best how to balance the needs of the ecosystem”

Last month, Senator Lummis introduced the Grizzly Bear State Management Act of 2021 to mandate that the Yellowstone-area grizzly bear population is managed based on scientific evidence, not the whims of federal bureaucrats.
