According to the Missoulian, there are lots of folks worried about the fate of the Yellowstone grizzlies and they all want their say in court . . .

That means getting a lot of cats herded in the same direction, on both sides of the case.
Below the title “Crow Indian Tribe et. al. vs United States of America et. al.” at least a dozen groups and agencies say they have a stake in how 700 grizzly bears in and around Yellowstone National Park get managed.
