Fremont Commissioners Continue Fight Against Grizzlies
Lander, WY – The Fremont County Commission has again declared its opposition to grizzly bears. Commissioners unanimously approved a resolution Tuesday that declares grizzlies unacceptable in the county. The resolution follows a series of Game and Fish public meetings on the department's plan to manage grizzly bears once federal protections are removed. Under the plan, the bears would be allowed to roam outside of a primary conservation area into some other parts of the state, including a Fremont County portion of the Wind River Range. The County Commission says the presence of grizzlies would run counter to the county's land use plan.
