Only 300 grizzlies left in all of Alberta-

Montana probably has 3 to 4 times as many grizzlies now as Alberta.

    Not surprising.
    Canada doesn’t really have decent wildlife policies. The hunting community has all the say on what lives and what dies (in mass), not a breath of sound science to be heard.

    John, I agree, but what is odd is that they protect the fish populations tremendously. Great laws on catch and release and such.

    The shutdown of the Grand Banks cod fishery in the waning years of the 20th Century speaks for Canada’s attention to fisheries (you can read about the cod in the book “Who Killed the Grand Banks?” by Alex Rose), but terrestrial wildlife is quickly being hammered to death in Alberta. Look at what has happened to Appalachia in West Virginia to get a closer look at the dangers of resource extraction.
