Instead of recognizing the successful recovery of the Yellowstone grizzly, radical environmentalists have sought repeatedly, and for an ever-changing list of reasons, to invalidate the delisting of the grizzly.

RANCHERS SAY SCIENTIFIC CONSENSUS SUPPORTS DE-LISTING OF YELLOWSTONE GRIZZLY BEAR

The grizzly bear is an icon of the West, the frontier, and our nation as a whole. Once an endangered species, the Yellowstone grizzly is today an unqualified success story. According to U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and independent scientists, the Yellowstone grizzly population has fully recovered.

On behalf of its clients, W&M Thoman Ranches, Charles C. Price, Wyoming Farm Bureau Federation, and Wyoming Stock Growers Association, Mountain States Legal Foundation (MSLF) filed its opening brief on appeal before the Ninth Circuit on Friday in the case Crow Indian Tribe v. United States of America.

MSLF’s appeal asks the court to recognize that, based on the best available science, the Yellowstone grizzly is fully recovered. MSLF’s brief also stresses that the court should acknowledge the limits of the Endangered Species Act (ESA) and not extend its requirements beyond the text of the statute.

“The district court improperly expanded the scope of the ESA and substituted its judgment for that of Fish and Wildlife officials,” said Cody Wisniewski, MSLF’s lead attorney on the case. “All we are asking is that the Ninth Circuit uphold text and plain meaning of the ESA as well as allow the scientists to interpret the science, not the courts.”

Instead of recognizing the successful recovery of the Yellowstone grizzly, radical environmentalists have sought repeatedly, and for an ever-changing list of reasons, to invalidate the delisting of the grizzly.

The Obama administration first attempted to de-list the Yellowstone grizzly in 2007, but the effort was stalled by the courts. Government officials attempted to de-list the grizzly a second time in 2017, but once again they were blocked by legal action.

With decades of interagency and intergovernmental cooperation, resources, and expenditures, the Yellowstone grizzly bear population has met every possible recovery and conservation goal.

  1. You do realize Bush was stollpresident in 2007 and 2008, while citing 2017, you would of course be referring to the current administration.
