Griz Hunts On Hold – Wyoming

Judge Puts ID, WY Griz Hunts On Hold

SCI first for hunters logoJust hours after the end of the hearing held on challenges to the delisting of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem grizzly bear population, a Montana federal district court judge issued a 14-day temporary restraining order against the hunts planned by Wyoming and Idaho.

The court issued the order, based on motions filed immediately after the hearing by some of the plaintiffs in the grizzly bear delisting case.  The court did not wait to allow briefs from the defendants U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, states of Wyoming, Idaho and Montana and non-governmental organizations such as SCI and NRA, before issuing the order to temporarily restrain the start of the hunts.

The court’s order will at least postpone the grizzly bear hunts that were to begin on Sept. 1.

All parties are waiting for the court to issue his ruling on the validity of the delisting.  That ruling is expected on or before the end of the 14-day period.

SCI is considering its options to address the court’s ruling.

SCI And NRA Defend Grizzly Delisting In Montana Court Hearing

SCI And NRA Defend Grizzly Delisting In Montana Court Hearing

 

SCI first for hunters logoAttorneys from Safari Club International and National Rifle Association of America today participated in a hearing held in Montana federal court to decide the fate of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s delisting of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem (GYE) grizzly bear population.

During the hearing, the judge informed all parties that he would not rule from the bench but would make his decision on the delisting as expeditiously as possible.

All Defendants, represented by attorneys for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the states of Wyoming, Idaho and Montana and several non-governmental organizations including SCI and NRA, made strong arguments in defense of the delisting and the use of hunting as a grizzly bear management tool.

As of the date of the publication of this article, the grizzly bear hunts set to begin in Wyoming and Idaho on Sept. 1, 2018, are still scheduled to go forward.

When the judge issues his ruling and/or there is any change in the schedule for the hunts in Wyoming and Idaho, SCI will publicize that information immediately.
