Scientists say the Yellowstone Area Grizzly has recovered and should no longer be listed on the Endangered Species List. It was a conservation success. Instead of rejoicing, big-city environmentalists sued to keep the bear on the endangered list. Now, in a new lawsuit, the radical groups are using the grizzly again to advance their anti-ranching agenda.

Keeping a family farm, sheep or cattle ranch profitable is a difficult enough without special interest groups making it harder. The grizzly bear was once an endangered species, but in 2017 the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service found the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem’s grizzly population exceeded scientists’ minimum goals for the powerful predator. It had fully recovered. The agency tried to remove the animal from the endangered list, but was sued in Crow Indian Tribe v. United States of America. More recently, environmental groups also got involved trying to prevent delisting of the grizzly.
