The Keystone Species The Grizzly Bear is one of nature’s last keystone species that is contributing to the Western United states and Southwestern Canada. The Grizzly Bear is thought of as a vicious beast who kills people without intent. Grizzly Bears are actually important to the environment and ecosystem that they live in. This Bear is an intelligent animal, which serves a role of preserving a plant’s way of life. It creates soil disturbance which causes more nitrogen to be produced to generate more nutrients for plants.
Thesis statement: Grizzly bears should be taken off of the endangered species list because 1) they have meat all of the requirements, 2) States will be in charge of monitoring the bears, and 3) as long as the state monitor the population
I am going to relocate the grizzly bear because, this isn’t a problem of hunting, where the bear needs to be hunted because of any supposed killing or injuries it done, and it was only one bear, so there is no need to reduce the number in the bear population. However, this may could have been or was already a chronic, so I will contact the local Cody, Wyoming agencies to see if shooting the bear is the best solution, if no other solutions work. I also don’t think trapping is an option, when there is no population or distribution estimates in the need of being done, plus trapping is hard work and costs a lot of money implant in large areas, and when the bear has already been located, it will be easy to get from the one of the two stores. I do
In terms of the grizzly bear, its behavior is complex, but should never be mistaken as mimicking human behavior. Craighead, Sumner, and Mitchell (1995) note that in Yellowstone National Park, a prime laboratory for studying human-grizzly interactions, the relationship has been uneasy at best. They note that bears have a concept of “personal space” and that “a seemingly placid animal (male or female) can become awesomely aggressive and attack instantaneously.” (Craighead et al.149-150). Treadwell, as many Yellowstone visitors do, made the mistake that just because the bears were tolerating his presence at one time meant that they had made up their minds about him and would leave him alone. This was an error of anthropomorphism, as the bears were clearly not perceiving him the way another human would, i.e., as friend or foe; their lack of reaction to him didn’t mean that they saw him as a friend. This was a fairly stupid assumption for Treadwell to have made, particularly given his professed knowledge of and fascination with the bears.
What Is Being Done To Help Save Kermode Bears? Kermode Bears are being saved in a various amount of ways like international guilt and many protests nation-wide. In 2006 the Great Bear Rainforest agreements were created to stop lodging and to help save many animals that live within it. The agreements include to close 4.4 million acres from lodging and 500 000 acres closed off to Kermode Bear hunting. Also in 1993 “The War In The Woods” had took place between large companies that wanted to “clear-cut” the Great Bear Rainforest to make a profit, and also between environmentalists that wanted to protect this precious
First, bears should not be removed because it is their common territory. In article 2 it states, “Denali National Park and preserve is home to both black bears and grizzly bears”(National Park Service n.p.). Since, Denali is a preserve to the bears that means Yellowstone and Yosemite National Park are preserves to them too. If rangers are removing the bears he/she is taking their home away: like for example what if someone just kicks people out of their house, citizens would not be too happy and would perhaps try

Black bears are the smallest North American bears however; they are the largest land mammal in New Jersey. Black bears evolved in thick forest and live in mixed hardwood forests, dense swamps and forested wetlands. They naturally like to eat fresh leaves, berries, fruits, nuts, roots, insects, bird eggs
Black bears in BC have a population that is 9 times that of the grizzlies, however, the results show that the grizzlies have inflicted 9.7 times more attacks on humans in the past 16 years. This goes to show that grizzly bears have a higher tendency to attack due to the natural factors and stresses that act on them cause them to be much more aggressive with less tolerance to threats (Herrero, Aspects of Evolution and Adaptation in American Black Bears (Ursus americanus Pallas) and Brown and Grizzly Bears (U. arctos Linne.) of North America n.d.). Many other papers such as Herrero’s study in both 1972 and 1985 showed the same results where grizzlies had higher rates of attacks compared to black bears in BC and so it clearly shows that there
Rejected alternatives: Several alternatives were rejected for various reasons. The first rejected alternative was a managed hunt, for the need of legislation change in congress to allow a hunt on NPS land and possible cost and safety issues. A second was sterilization of bucks, which would only show moderate control of the population if the dominant buck were sterilized. Predator reintroduction was next rejected, because studies have shown that predators have not shown consistent
The Grizzly Reality of Trophy Hunting Trophy hunting is defined as the selective hunting of select species of hunting game for human recreation and not as a way to get food, even though parts of the animals may be consumed. The animal or part of it is kept as a trophy
Both sides are understandable. Farmers don’t want wolves in their property because they are having fear about protection of their livestock. Their stance is understandable but their revenge on against gray wolves is too harsh. According to PBS, During a fifteen year period, because of natural cause like bad weather, killed 20000 to 100000 of livestock and only less than 5000 of livestocks killed because of wolves. But more than 1000 of wolves were killed for their revenge. This harsh attitude towards wolves is leading to killing all of the gray wolves like starting anti-wolf campaign. However, wolves are useful for the eco system. Even the gray wolves have important role to balancing the eco system, many people (in Montana, Wyoming and Idaho) do not want wolves and don’t see their importance. Most of time, the Federal government usually feels the duty to decide what is right with total widespread opposition. But the state government try to listen the people’s wishes. For this reason, Federal government and State government has difficulty to work together. But in my opinion, When different levels of government have different audiences and different priorities, it has a strong point of them to collaborate. The conflict between the different levels of government will make to come up with a better and best solution. In this case, without the Federal government , many species would already be extinct.
What if you see three bears right in front of you on the street? I bet you will scream and run. The situation could be totally different if it happens in a cartoon on the screen. The Bare Bears is such a story about humanised bears in human society, created
During hunting welfare of Grizzly is severely compromised as all three spheres of welfare, which are biological functioning, affective state, and natural living, proposed by Fraser et al. (1997) are negatively impacted. It has widely been studied that capture and tracking methods can impose stress on the wildlife. In the
Engineers In North America, the grizzly bear is a keystone species - not as a predator but as ecosystem engineers. They transfer nutrients from the oceanic ecosystem to the forest ecosystem. The first stage of the transfer
