Game and Fish Tries to Set the Record Straight

Laramie, Wy – The Game and Fish Department's Assistant Wildlife Division Chief says people at a series of public meetings on changes to the Grizzly Bear Management Plan expressed several misconceptions. John Emmerich says many people believe the agency wants to limit things like grazing, snowmobiling and other human activities, but that will not happen.
Emmerich says a lot of the confusion came about because the National Forests are also working on bear management plans. He says one of the options they were looking at included some of those restrictions, but that option is not the preferred one.
