The Alliance for the Wild Rockies is annoyed with federal foot-dragging . . .
A conservation group is suing the U.S. Geological Survey for information on threatened grizzly bears in northwestern Montana.
The Alliance for the Wild Rockies says the USGS failed to respond to a Freedom of Information Act request for reports and findings on the Cabinet-Yaak Grizzly Bear DNA Project.
The project aims to give researchers a better idea of the number of bears in that area through DNA from hair samples.
