A proposal by the Biden administration to release grizzly bears in a Washington forest area has faced opposition from various livestock and agriculture industry groups, as well as state and local governments.

The groups argue that releasing grizzly bears near communities could threaten public safety, harm economic viability, and jeopardize conservation efforts.

The federal government’s plan to establish a grizzly bear population has been met with criticism from local lawmakers and residents, as well as state governments in Montana and Idaho. (Trending: Court Hands Down Crucial 2nd Amendment Ruling)

Incoming NCBA president Mark Eisele said, “Introducing an apex predator like the grizzly bear to a new area of Washington state is a mistake and poses a huge threat to our rural communities and hardworking farmers and ranchers.”

Adding, “This plan is being pushed by bureaucrats thousands of miles away from the West who do not fully understand the harm this species will cause to producers.

“The Biden administration should listen to rural residents and rethink this plan,” demanded the Wyoming rancher.

PLC President Mark Roeber said, “Grizzly bears are 20 times more dangerous than black bears and are well known for their aggressive, fatal mauling.”

“Their broad diet means they can harm anyone — corn producers, orchards, cattle ranchers, sheep ranchers. The list goes on and on,” explained the rancher from Colorado.

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Director Dustin Temple wrote, “Grizzly bears will occupy a diversity of habitats, regardless of landownership or zonal designation.

Temple warned that, “It is naive to think that there will only be bears on public lands, unless the intent is to manage bears to exclude any that wander onto private land,”

“If that is the intent, then many more bears will be required to achieve a desired population,” explained the director.

The proposal, which includes options for restoring grizzly bear populations, has sparked significant debate and concern among various stakeholders.
