With both grizzly bears and wolves on the brink of being delisted in Montana, the state legislature is busy paving the way toward hunting seasons. On Thursday, a Senate committee unanimously endorsed legislation to institute grizzly bear and wolf hunts as soon as federal protections are lifted. According to this Associated Press story, the bill drew no opposition in a Senate Fish and Game Committee hearing and is backed by the Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks. It now goes to the Senate floor for further debate.
