Threats to the Yellowstone Grizzly Bear
- Major grizzly food sources are in decline: Climate change has decimated the grizzly’s most important food, nuts of the whitebark pine tree. Introduced lake trout have reduced cutthroat trout numbers by more than 90%.
- Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem bears are genetically and physically isolated from all other grizzly populations.
- Grizzlies are one of the slowest reproducing land mammals in North America. Delisting triggers a trophy hunt that will put them on the path to extinction.
- Montana proposed grizzly hunting regulations (PDF) Only a $50 license for a Montana resident.
- President Obama said “The greatest threat to our national parks is climate change,” but, the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, denies this risk stating “we conclude that the effects of climate change do not constitute a threat to the [Yellowstone grizzly bear population] now, nor are they anticipated to in the future.” This is an astonishing contradiction.
