BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — U.S. officials said Wednesday they'll review the recent lifting of protections for Yellowstone-area grizzly bears in light of a court ruling that retained protections for gray wolves in the Great Lakes.

About 700 bears in and around Yellowstone National Park lost their threatened species status on July 31, opening the door to future trophy hunts in Wyoming, Montana and Idaho.
 
Just a day later, a federal appeals court in Washington D.C. said in the wolf case that wildlife officials needed to give more consideration to how a species' loss of historical habitat affects its recovery.

Like wolves, grizzly bears have seen a strong recovery over the past several decades in isolated regions of the U.S., but remain absent from the vast majority of their historical range.

3. Small victories ... gotta take em when they come.

Little doubt this'll elicit tweets from Herr Drumpfenfuhrer, angry his absolute dictatorial authority hath been questioned by JUDGES (probably themselves Muslim Bears, born in Mexico).

The knuckle-draggers will soon thereafter begin festooning their vehicles with bumper stickers supporting the Patriotic Shooting of Illegal Muslim Mexican Bears!!!1!!
