Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon signed several bills into law on February 15th.  One particular bill would allow grizzly hunts to take place if the state feels that its needed.


Another part of the bill includes the relocation of problems bears


“Grizzly bears are trapped and relocated in Wyoming and in some cases are euthanized for livestock depredation, property damage or endangerment of human life. If the game and fish commission determines under the laws of the state of Wyoming that extraterritorial relocation would be beneficial for managing Wyoming’s wildlife and protecting Wyoming workers and other citizens and tourists of the state, the game and fish commission may relocate to the state of California, to states with a grizzly bear population below the threshold for Endangered Species Act protection or to other willing states with suitable habitat all grizzly bears trapped for relocation.” Bill SF0093
