Grizzly 399, who lives with her family in the Northern Rockies, is one of the best-known grizzly-bear mothers. Now her life is in danger.
The Trump administration has authorized a plan to kill up to 72 grizzlies in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem — which could include Grizzly 399 and her cubs if they move into the project area.
This barbaric plan can't stand — so we just went to court to stop it.

Grizzly bears have come out of hibernation in just the past few weeks. While they were sleeping, the U.S. Forest Service has refused to relent on its plan to let them be killed. It's sickening to think these beloved grizzlies could one day wake up to a gunshot.
Female grizzlies with cubs have been documented occupying the areas where bears will be targeted, a grazing area in Wyoming's Bridger-Teton National Forest.
The Forest Service wants to let up to 72 grizzlies be slaughtered even though grizzlies are protected by the Endangered Species Act.
This plan is cruel, and it's also illegal. Giving the go-ahead to kill wildlife as a favor to industry is exactly the kind of behavior that has fueled the extinction crisis.
Yellowstone's grizzlies, some of the most beloved in the world, are still threatened. By nature they have one of the slowest reproduction rates of any mammal. Each and every grizzly is precious. We're not about to let them get picked off without a fight.
Every day 22 species go extinct — about one every hour. Humans created the extinction crisis due to centuries of habitat destruction, climate change and explosive population growth, but with bold ideas we can fix it.
It starts with protecting endangered and threatened species.
