Wyoming Proposes Hunting Grizzlies for Trophy
Eight months ago, Yellowstone’s grizzly bears were a federally protected endangered species.
Now, less than a year after U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service removed protection for the iconic bears, Wyoming has proposed hunting them for trophy.
The first Wyoming grizzly bear trophy hunt in over four decades will begin in the fall and target 24 bears if commissioners who oversee the state’s wildlife sign off on the proposal.
In the meantime, the agency is inviting the public to weigh in on the draft regulations. Comments are due by April 30.
