Hunters are killing grizzly bears in record numbers around Yellowstone National Park and researchers say the once-endangered predator is expanding across the region.
"Schwartz and other biologists who study grizzlies insist the population in the 15,000-square-mile Yellowstone region of Montana, Idaho and Wyoming remains strong for now, growing on average 4 to 5 percent a year. Yet they acknowledge climate change could prove the wild card that puts that growth in check. An epidemic of beetles in Yellowstone's high country has laid waste to tens of thousands of acres of whitebark pine trees, which have seeds that some grizzlies rely on as a dietary staple." They can never let it go can they.....Even with good news about the environment they raise the horrific specter of "Climate Change"....Common sense would tell you, warmer climate means more plant growth, which means more food for all animals.
