Federal officials are considering removing grizzly bears in a northern Montana region from the endangered species list. This comes on the heels of a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service decision to delist bears in the Greater Yellowstone ecosystem — which took decades to resolve. But, the debate is far from over. Several groups have filed lawsuits to stop the switch and keep the grizzlies under federal management.
