Trump Administration to End Protections for Yellowstone Grizzly Bears

Washington, June 29 (RHC)-- In the United States, the Donald Trump administration has said it will remove grizzly bears in and around Yellowstone National Park from protection under the Endangered Species Act. 

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke’s order will impact Yellowstone’s estimated 700 bears, whose population has grown from 136 when the bears were first listed as endangered in 1975. 

In response, the Center for Biological Diversity said: "It’s tragic that the Trump administration is stripping protections from these magnificent animals just to appease a tiny group of trophy hunters who want to stick grizzly bear heads on their walls." 

President Trump’s two adult sons, Eric and Donald Jr., are longtime trophy hunters who have been repeatedly photographed alongside dead animals, including a leopard and an elephant.
