USFWS will not restore federal protections to Yellowstone-area grizzlies

BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — U.S. officials will not restore federal protections for Yellowstone-area grizzly bears, despite a court ruling that called into question the government's rationale for turning grizzly management over to states that are now planning public hunts for the animals, according to an announcement Friday in in the Federal Register.

The disclosure from the Interior Department follows a months-long review of a decision last year to lift protections in place since 1975 for about 700 bears in and around Yellowstone National Park.
