Enviros sue Wyoming after passage of law calling for grizzly hunt—even though bears still under ESA

Two days after word broke that Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon had signed into law legislation calling for a grizzly bear hunt in the state, conservation groups filed notice to sue the state. 

“This is an egregious attempt to ignore federal law protecting Yellowstone’s iconic grizzly bears,” said Bonnie Rice, senior representative with Sierra Club’s Our Wild America campaign, two days after Traveler reported the bill signing. “We will not idly stand by while Wyoming moves to illegally take authority for managing grizzly bears and subject them to trophy hunts.”
