U.S. Interior Secretary David Bernhardt paid a visit to the Rocky Mountain Front Saturday to hear about conflicts with grizzly bears. The secretary heard numerous calls for delisting grizzlies from their threatened species status in and around Glacier National Park, but he says changes may be able to be made prior to delisting.
Secretary Bernhardt took an early-morning tour of a ranch near Choteau where grizzlies and humans frequently come in contact. Montana U.S. House Rep. Greg Gianforte invited Bernhardt on behalf of several farmers, ranchers and others living along the Rocky Mountain Front
