Native Americans from seven U.S. states and Canada are suing the
United States’ federal government over its recent decision to remove
grizzly bears from the endangered and threatened species list. Their
lawsuit alleges that the government failed to consult with Native American groups and that the delisting violates their religion.
In June, U.S. Secretary of Interior Ryan Zinke announced
that grizzly bears would be removed from the Endangered Species List.
He cited the bears’ population increasing from “as few as 136 bears in
1975 to an estimated 700 today.”
There were once between 50,000 and 100,000 grizzly bears roaming the U.S. Today an estimated 1% of that population remains and they have been removed from 98% of their original range in the contiguous United States...https://ladyfreethinker.org/native-americans-suing-government-delisting-grizzly-bears-endangered/
