U.S. District Court Judge, Dana Christensen, issued a temporary order to halt grizzly management hunts in Wyoming and Idaho scheduled to begin 1 September, 2018. The judge, whom it seems knows little or nothing about bears or wildlife management, sided with junk science and outright lies told to the court by numerous radical anti-hunting and eccomentalist groups.
Grizzly bears were removed from protected status by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife service in accordance with the Endangered Species Act in 2017. Bear management now rest with state wildlife agencies. The injunction is in effect for fourteen days, after which time, Judge Christensen will make a final ruling.
