Courts Place Temporary Block On Grizzly Hunting Around Yellowstone

Alt National Park Service reports

A federal judge in Montana issued a court order late Thursday temporarily blocking the first trophy hunt of grizzly bears in and around Yellowstone National Park in more than 40 years. U.S. District Judge Dana Christensen issued a 14-day restraining order, siding with environmentalists and Native American groups who oppose the hunt. The order came two days before Wyoming and Idaho were scheduled to allow licensed grizzly hunts that could lead to as many as 23 bears being killed for sport in the two states.
