Wyoming leaders say a federal judge’s reinstatement of protections for Yellowstone-area grizzly bears ignored science.
Investigation concludes that bears attacked “to feed on elk” as hunter Corey Chubon and guide Mark Uptain field dressed their kill in fatal 2018 encounter.
OSHA issued two recommendations in a “fatal alert.” Teton County Sheriff tested a Glock from the scene as coroner, Game and Fish accounts differ.
A federal judge returned the Yellowstone grizzly bear to the endangered species list ending state management of the species and cancelling a planned Wyoming hunting season.
Thursday hearing could stall Wyoming hunt. Meantime license winners prepare with required hunting courses, including those who intend to “shoot ’em with a camera.”
