Grizzly Bear

My Endangered Homie

Why is the Grizzly Endagered?

"On July 28, 1975, under the authority of the Endangered Species Act, the US Fish and Wildlife Service listed the grizzly bear in the lower 48 states as "threatened," in part, because the species was reduced to only about 2 percent of its former range south of Canada"
