U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service,
We oppose your proposal to strip grizzly bears in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem of their Endangered Species Act protection. If delisted, grizzlies in Montana, Idaho, and Wyoming would face being hunted and killed for the first time in 40 years. Grizzlies are iconic wildlife in the American West critical to the health of the West’s ecosystems. Their population has not fully recovered; and so long as the animals' survival is threatened, all grizzlies require continued Endangered Species Act protection.
