The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service says state officials provided substantial evidence grizzlies have recovered from the threat of extinction in the regions surrounding Yellowstone and Glacier national parks. But federal officials also raised concerns about new state laws that could affect bears. Friday’s move kicks off at least a year of further study before a final decision. Grizzlies were wiped out in most of the U.S. during the last century. There are now more than 2,000 bears in the Lower 48 states and larger populations in Alaska.
