Grizzly Delisting Will Test States, Forest Service. By Bill Schneider. New West.

Bashing the federal government for excessive restrictions, unneeded to truly protect the grizzly, has been a popular activity among state politicians in these 3 states. They won’t have this issue to use anymore says Schneider, who goes on to fear for the future of the island grizzly population in the Greater Yellowstone.

    Don’t worry folks, the great states of Montana, Wyoming, and my home state of Idaho will find new ways to bash the feds. All is well.

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."
