Did a search and saw nothing, so I apologize if this is a repost.  Just wanted to put this out there.  As if there weren't enough problems.....

Some initial things I noticed;

"First" - haha. How out of touch are they?

"will aid biologists in advancing recovery of the species” - Well that's not good. As if their prey isn't already suffering enough.

“we have grizzly bears in Washington and that they can coexist peacefully with people,” - First one in 40 years since the beginning of the recovery. Captured on REMOTE cameras in a RUGGED area of the Selkirks, yet people and grizzlies can coexist?  There is a whole lot of data to support those claims lol.  Apparently they haven't been paying attention to Montana and the rampant grizzly attacks over there.

This is pretty infuriating.

A brief history of WDFW and the NE Corner (dates very approximate)

1990 - Caribou are super important, we spend 300k a year keeping our herd of 40 alive.
2000 - Wolves are also super important and very kind animals.  We must foster their rapidly growing population.
2005 - Wolves are kind, but need to be retrained not to eat sheep, so we will kill one to teach them a lesson.  Cost to taxpayers, 6 figures.
2012 - Our kind wolves ate all the Caribou, but now we have more money to spend on more wolves, lets keep this on the DL
2012 - 2021 Wolves can still learn, but we'll continue to charge you all lots of money to keep most of them alive while they eat your cows
2021 - Nice, we got a grizz on camera, now we have somewhere to REALLY spend that -bou money and our pet wolves wont eat them!
2022 - We need more money for our bear.

Wolves and grizzly bears are the most studied animals in North America over the last forty years. If I was King I would tell the "researchers" that they weren't getting another damn nickel to study either species and when they need information that they don't have they should open up a book or do a web search because sure as *censored* someone, somewhere, has already been there and done that.

The title of the article says “the first female grizzly captured, collared, and released.
Not “the first female grizzly bear”!

I can remember Jim Montegue (spelling?) the Fish and Wildlife officer who lived above Perygin Lake back in the early 90s, would come by our winter meadow camp every year before the opener.
One year the subject of grizzly sightings came up. Big Jim said the were monitoring six grizzly denning sights in the region that female Grizzlies were known to use.
Only 2 defining forces sacrificed themselves for you:
The American Soldier and Jesus Christ. One died for your freedom, the other for your soul.

My rock,
He trains my hands for war and my fingers for battle.

I ran across obvious grizzly tracks in fresh overnight snow near Ramsey Peak back in the mid 70’s.
If man was not supposed to eat animals, God wouldn't have made them out of meat.
