Good American grizzly bear news

This video from the USA is about grizzly bears versus wolves.

From Associated Press:

1st grizzly seen at Elk Refuge in nearly 20 years

August 27, 2013 4:00 pm

JACKSON, Wyo. — A grizzly has been spotted at the National Elk Refuge for the first time in nearly 20 years.

A sow, with three cubs, was seen on Aug. 20 feeding on a gut pile from the annual bison hunt. It’s believed to have been a bear well-known to visitors of Grand Teton National Park, No. 399. That bear had triplets this year and had been seen in the southeast edge of the national park days before the refuge sighting.

A grizzly, also with three cubs, was last seen at the refuge in 1994.

Refuge biologist Eric Cole said that hunters have been warned to carry bear spray because of the possibility of grizzlies being drawn to the hunt.

And not so good news: November 2013: Trophy hunting is putting British Columbia’s population of grizzly bears at risk scientists from the Raincoast Conservation Foundation, the University of Victoria and Simon Fraser University have found. For despite supposedly strict regulations the report shows trophy hunters regularly kill more bears than allowed under the province’s own management policy, and passes doubt on the BC government’s claim that ‘sound science’ is used to manage the trophy hunting. However, better news in 2017: here.
