The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service currently is considering the most significant wildlife issue of our time: removal of Endangered Species Act protections from Yellowstone’s grizzly bear population.

This action will trigger a trophy hunting season in Montana, Idaho, and Wyoming. Habitat and food sources for Yellowstone’s grizzlies are being profoundly impacted by climate change.

These bears are the slowest reproducing land mammal in the United States, and opening a hunting season on them while they are already struggling with the effects of climate change would be an arbitrary and capricious action that ignores the best available science, and smacks of reckless disregard for the bears’ well being.

We, the undersigned, are asking Secretary Zinke to direct his agency to maintain Endangered Species Act protections for Yellowstone’s grizzly bears.

Please sign the petition: Save the Yellowstone Grizzly – Stop the Delisting & Stop the Trophy Hunt.

Thank you for your support.

Our species is long overdue to leave the Dark Ages and join the 21st century with our thinking and our treatment of all non-human beings, especially the magnificent Grizzly Bears who deserve to walk this land in peace, without fear of losing their precious lives to trophy hunters who need to find another way to enjoy themselves other than killing. Shoot with a camera, just leave these bears off the serial killers hit list. Protect the animals at all costs!

politicians and special interest’s need to start looking elsewhere for the proposals to help balance the federal budget besides selling out our nations wildlife to anyone for any reason as they have consistently done for over 7 years now through every single agency designed or conceived under the notion of preservation for all future generations of north american citizens and the wildlife that keeps the nation wild and alive. because this is unacceptable again on so many levels we know how important the predators really are and that is why we fight so righteously to remove cattle from our public… Read more »

More and more wildlife is getting killed off through climate change or human game. Mankind needs to step back and tale a look at the damage it is causing to not only the animal kingdom but also the environemnt. We need to stop destroying everything. Stop trying to manage and rearrange everything. If anything needs to be done, then nurture only. The world doesn’t belong to us, we share it and only for the short periods of time, passingit on to the next generations. Present generations are very selfish and greedy indeed and lacking in common sense.

The USFWS are uneducated, vile animal hating fools. These horrible morons need to have their employment terminated immediately.

Anne Grice

Voted NO. Why doesn’t the USFWS listen to intelligent people for a change and stop the senseless decimation of wild life?

Anne Grice

What is wrong with the USFWS? Its sickening to know how limited intelligence the people in this office have! The decimation of wild life in every corner is outpacing their replacement. Why dont they listen to science for a change and stop being influenced but uneducated people!
