More grizzly bear monitoring action as the feds move towards removing the animal from the endangered species list in some areas . . .
Twenty-four grizzly bears have been captured so far this year in and around Yellowstone National Park as wildlife managers start another season of research toward a potential lifting of federal protections.
The Interagency Grizzly Bear Study Team captured the grizzlies in Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks and outside the parks in Montana and Wyoming.
Teams are now starting to trap grizzlies in eastern Idaho to attach radio or GPS collars.
