The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is a little closer to removing grizzly bears from the endangered list in the Yellowstone area . . .
Work to remove grizzly bears in the greater Yellowstone ecosystem from federal endangered species protection is moving forward.
That’s what Chris Servheen, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s grizzly bear recovery coordinator, told members of the Yellowstone Ecosystem Subcommittee of the Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee in Jackson, Wyo., this week.
A new rule removing the bears from the endangered species list could be finished by the end of the year.
