It's not time to delist grizzlies.

The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service is declaring that the Yellowstone population of grizzly bears is recovered and no longer needs the protections of the Endangered Species Act. Certainly we can all agree that the recovery of grizzly bears in the Yellowstone region has been a tremendous success and has prevented this population from going extinct. But have they recovered enough to no longer need federal protections?
