ID: Conservationists Want Hunters To Carry Bear Spray In Grizzly Country
Submitted by:">Mark A. Taff

A coalition of conservationists is petitioning Idaho and Wyoming to make hunters carry bear spray when they’re within the Yellowstone ecosystem.

Humans are the leading cause of grizzly bear deaths in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, and a lot of those deaths are from hunters.

In 2017, 59 grizzly bears died in the Yellowstone area, and 15 of those were caused by hunters acting in self-defense. 

Here’s what happens: A hunter shoots an elk, and then starts to gut the animal.


'Doesn't matter WHAT they want. I go in bear country, my first grab is a 45-70.

Screw that bear spray and the tree-huggin' horse it rode in on.
