REP. CHENEY ACCUSES TRIBES OF "DESTROYING OUR WESTERN WAY OF LIFE" OVER SACRED GRIZZLY PROTECTIONS

RIVERTON, Wyo. — On a momentous day for Tribal Nations, Congresswoman Liz Cheney (R-WY), the House Republican Conference Chairwoman, stated that the successful litigation by tribes and environmentalists to return the grizzly bear in Greater Yellowstone to the Endangered Species Act (ESA) “was not based on science or facts” but motivated by plaintiffs “intent on destroying our Western way of life.”

One of the largest tribal-plaintiff alliances in recent memory prevailed in the landmark case, Crow Tribe et al v. Zinke last September, when US District Judge Dana Christensen ruled in favor of the tribes and environmental groups after finding that the Trump Administration’s US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) had failed to abide by the ESA and exceeded its authority in attempting to remove federal protections from the grizzly. Tuesday, USFWS officially returned federal protections to the grizzly.

1. I guess it's pointless to ask just what western way of life she's talking about...

I doubt she's talking about the life of the Crow before the Louisiana Purchase.

3. I can't get the image of a'hole Liz Cheney being chased by an angry grizzley...

I'll let her escape in my fantasy, but boy will I be rooting for the bear.
