Reporter Rebecca Huntington discusses a meeting of grizzly experts.
Wyoming – Twice a year, a subgroup of the Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee meets to talk about the big questions of grizzly bear management. Last year, Wyoming saw a record number of human-grizzly bear interactions. And in the last four years the bear has been removed from the Endangered Species List, and put back on the list by a federal court ruling. An appeal of that ruling is underway. Wyoming Public Radio's Rebecca Huntington attended the committee's most recent meeting in Jackson and she joins us now. Rebecca, tell us what generally happens at these meetings - and how was this one different?
