Montana Fish, Widlife & Parks has developed a draft management plan and environmental impact statement (EIS) after a series of public meetings beginning in 2004 about grizzly bear management in western Montana. The increased grizzly population and distribution in western Montana prompted the reevaluation of existing programs. “Our goal is to find ways to fit grizzly bears in across a broader landscape as a part of Montana’s wildlife heritage and respond to the increasing number and distribution of bears,” says FWP Endangered Species Coordinator Arnie Dood. The plan and EIS offers new approaches to human safety, conflicts with livestock, and property damage.

The public can comment on the draft until October 3 via mail, e-mail ([email protected]), or at one of several public meetings held throughout the region in September. For more information go to fwp.mt.gov/publicnotices/notice_1137.aspx.
