Grizzly’s threatened status heard before Ninth Circuit

Grizzly’s threatened status appealed in 9th Circuit court. Washington Post

Update added on March 14: Audio of hearing before the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.

I listened to most of this. The government attorney seemed to perform weakly in response to questions, IMO. I didn’t think the National Wildlife Federation did well intervening on behalf of the government. They made a political rather than a legal or scientific argument.  RM

    …….they periodically attack humans???

  2. Virginia Says:

    Just another attempt of USFW and the states to placate the ranchers and hunters. We all know what happens when the states are in charge of wildlife!

      Virgina, who should be in charge? The Feds?

      • Virginia Says:

        When the Wyoming’s official bear biologist – Mark Bruscino (sp) says he supports hunting of the grizzly, I guess I would have to hope the feds should be in charge. However, for the bear to survive and thrive it has to be protected and on the Endangered Species list. So, I guess you have a good point – there is no good solution for the grizzly.
