Grizzly Comments Extended

You can make comments on the draft of an updated conservation and management plan for grizzly bears in southwestern Montana until September 30.

The Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks officials extended the comments from September 16 in response from the public for more time to study the plan, which was developed over the last year.

The plan, in conjunction with an environmental impact statement, lays out options of bear management when the grizzly is removed from the federal list of threatened species.

Officials say there are 700 grizzly bears in the area under study and the EIS includes two possible alternative – including no action. The draft and comment forms are on-line at the Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks website.

After the comment period, the next step would be a final decision notice in October, which will be considered at the November meeting of the Montana Fish and Wildlife Commission.
