Wyoming might allow grizzly bear hunting

Hosted by

A federal judge on Thursday will decide the fate of 22 grizzly bears living in Wyoming near Yellowstone National Park. If the judge gives the go-ahead, grizzlies will be hunted in Wyoming for the first time in more than 40 years. That’s because the Trump administration took the bears off the Endangered Species list last June. Lawsuits followed from environmental groups and Native Americans, who consider grizzlies to be sacred.
