Grizzly bear comeback? Feds move to delist as a 'threatened' species

Grizzly bears have become so numerous in and around Yellowstone National Park that state and federal wildlife managers have recommended that the animals no longer be classified as “threatened” under the Endangered Species Act.
If the US Fish and Wildlife Service accepts the recommendation, the great bears could once again be hunted as game animals in the Yellowstone area. That’s what has happened with wolves there since they were reintroduced to the northern Rockies in the mid-1990s.
