    US to review end of protections for Yellowstone grizzlies

    US to review end of protections for Yellowstone grizzlies

    Updated 7:11 pm, Wednesday, December 6, 2017

    BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — U.S. officials said Wednesday they’ll review the recent lifting of protections for Yellowstone-area grizzly bears in light of a court ruling that retained protections for gray wolves in the Great Lakes.

    About 700 bears in and around Yellowstone National Park lost their threatened species status on July 31, opening the door to future trophy hunts in Wyoming, Montana and Idaho.

    Just a day later, a federal appeals court in Washington D.C. said in the wolf case that wildlife officials needed to give more consideration to how a species’ loss of historical habitat affects its recovery.

    2. Well, maybe someone will 'shoot' one with a tranq,

    and then ship it to the White House. Send along a personal note to Trump that it’s a trained circus bear.

    3. We are in the end times of sanity, it's all downhill and showing no

    signs of changing course.

    Democracy, in this late stage of capitalism, has been replaced with a system of legalized bribery. All branches of government, including the courts, along with the systems of entertainment and news, are wholly owned subsidiaries of the corporate state. Electoral politics are elaborate puppet shows.- Chris Hedges

    while hunting, then we’ll have to exterminate them all.
