Grizzly team urges end to spring hunt
CANMORE, Alberta Albertas grizzly bear recovery team is recommending an end to the spring grizzly bear hunt.
This past spring, 18 grizzlies were killed, and another 44 grizzlies died from other causes. The total grizzly population in Alberta minus Jasper, Banff and Waterton Lakes national parks is now estimated at only 500, only 300 of them adults. Any population of less than 1,000 mature breeding individuals is a threatened population, says the International Union for the Conservation of Nature.
Noting all this in an editorial, the Rocky Mountain Outlook says that those absent degrees in rocket science should be able to figure that 10 per cent mortality means "that in our lifetime the bears may be extirpated from this part of the world and this part of the world is among the last wilderness refuges left for the species." The provincial government should listen to the bear biologists, not the hunters and guides "for whom the bears are future rugs and trophies on the wall," said the newspaper. "Were not talking a food supply here, were talking bragging rights. This seems pretty darned simple."
Forest Service reins in campers at Lake Tahoe
LAKE TAHOE, Calif. The U.S. Forest Service is reining in campers in the Lake Tahoe Basin, which has as many annual visitors as Yosemite National Park but is only one-fifth the size.
The agency has reduced the stay permitted at any one free site from 14 days down to five. At developed campgrounds, people are still allowed to stay 14 days, but no more than three consecutive days at any one site, reports the Tahoe Daily Tribune.
