I hunt the area that is proposed, I am a Wyoming resident, and here's how I see it: There are inherent risks grazing domestic cattle public land in a wild landscape such as the GYE. The Taylor Grazing Act(1934) appeals to grazing on public ground for pennies on the dollar simply to create a greater yield/dollar, it does not insure it. Grizzlies were almost extinct in 1975- the recovery has been good, but it expands from an epicenter, that epicenter is near the proposed kill area.
