    Anyone know how far Grizzlies have expanded south in the winds? I know they have been in the upper green for years,but know of few reports farther south. Lots of sheep and cattle farther south for them to get into trouble with though. Spent a lot of time in the winds,beautiful counrty, and its my understanding that Grizzlies do use tundra quite a bit. My hope is they will expand through out the range and then possibly expand into The Uintas or even Colorado,but I know its likely just wishful thinking. The Uintas have a lot of great country for them,if people would just learn to live with them.

Quote

‎"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."

~ Edward Abbey
