Title: Livestock Producers Applaud Delisting of Yellowstone Grizzly Bear

WASHINGTON (June 22, 2017) -- Craig Uden, president of the National Cattlemen's Beef Association, and Dave Eliason, president of the Public Lands Council, today released the following statement in response to Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke's announcement that the Yellowstone Grizzly Bear is being delisted under the Endangered Species Act (ESA):

"This is good news for the Yellowstone grizzly and good news for the region's ranchers. Secretary Zinke and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service deserve credit for today's action, and we urge them to now take similar steps to remove other grizzly populations throughout the West from federal ESA protection - including the distinct population segment in the North Cascades Ecosystem in Washington State."
