A small army will soon begin a summer of scouring the woods of extreme Northwest Montana and northern Idaho, collecting grizzly bear hair for a genetics-based population study.

The project is being led by Kate Kendall, a U.S. Geological Survey researcher who pioneered a similar large landscape grizzly bear population study in the Northern Continental Divide Ecosystem in 2004.

            As Mittens would say, "bears are people too."

            And we will continue to have studies on the dam bear because we have no say in it, the people that live in New York, Colorado, California, Washington and Oregon are the ones that dictate what goes on! We live here year around, they visit here one or two weeks a year and they control this. Go figure!

            If growing population at ,03% this equates to approximately a total of 775 bears now! Assuming the 1.7 million was for an estimated 40 bears in a 2600 sq, mile recovery area, the total 8 year project to be distributed to State Agencies is costly at the least,an plain Stupid! When we consider the fact that they are still protected under the Endangered Specie Act as "Threatened" the total cost of this "Hair of the Dog" endeavor should be born by the EPA and Mr Obama, Otherwise they "The Fed's" should get out of the picture and let The State of Montana take over and then we can start a control program to make the increasing population viable to Montana's needs. The Fed's then can have their share of Glacier Park' populations. The cost of the Program is the EPA"s and its about time they start sharing in the costs of all their regulations!!! If this is what I think it is,Give it back to the Stupids It belongs too. Duh!!
