PETITION: Conserve Grizzly Bears
TARGET: US Wildlife Services
The Federal Government is considering removing Grizzly Bears off of the “Threatened” species list even though there is less than 1000 Yellowstone Grizzly Bears left. By removing them from the list, would make them a target for Trophy Hunters.
Due to severe shortages caused by overfishing, the struggle to bring the population above 1000 is an extremely difficult battle. Their nutrition impacts their already low reproduction rates, which are the slowest of any terrestrial mammal in North America. This makes it even more difficult for them to rebound from survival threats than many other animals. An open season on these bears will drive them back to the brink of extinction. Meanwhile, the grizzly bear is sacred to Sioux mythology, and Sioux tribe members are strongly opposed to its delisting. Hunting and killing a grizzly bear is tantamount to sacrilege in Sioux belief.
