3 Responses to Servheen impressed by Selkirk grizzly's journey to north central Idaho

  1. Mike says:

    Excellent article, and some fantastic country up that way. It’s nice to know wild places like that still exist.

  2. JEFF E says:

    Idaho Statesman has a story today where IFG shot a 200lb male grizzly in the priest lake area that had been deemed to be a danger due to habitation to human food sources. His brother may be next.

  3. The status of the Selkirk grizzly population seems about hopeless,and the management of that population by British Columbia is worse.

‎"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."
