U.S. Grizzly bears in north-central Montana could soon be delisted from federal protections

(HELENA) U.S. Grizzly bears in north-central Montana could soon be delisted from federal protections. Fish and Wildlife Service leaders announced Thursday, they could soon make a proposal to remove the estimated 1,000 grizzlies currently in the Northern Continental Divide Ecosystem from the Endangered Species Act. That area includes Glacier National Park, the Bob Marshall Wilderness, and much of the Rocky Mountain Front. Wildlife managers say it appears likely that population will be stable.
