Montana asks USFWS to pull ESA protections for grizzly bears around Glacier NP

BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — Montana is asking the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to lift threatened species protections for grizzly bears in the northern portion of the state, including areas in and around Glacier National Park, officials said Monday.

The state’s request comes after bear populations grew in recent decades, spurring more run-ins including grizzly attacks on livestock and periodic maulings of people.
