Grizzly Panel Delays Bear Recovery Strategy
The strategy guiding recovery of the largest grizzly bear population in the lower 48 states got its debut on Tuesday, but didn’t get its expected endorsement from the interagency Grizzly Bear Committee. IGBC Chairman Matt Hogan of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said early in the group’s summer meeting that the public needed more time to review the 326-page document. It’s final version was released online late Friday afternoon.
