The National Park Service and US Fish and Wildlife Service are taking public comment until March 14th on a plan to reintroduce grizzly bears to the North Cascades Ecosystem, an area stretching from the Canadian Border south to Interstate 90.
We 'll give you both sides of this issue starting with US Fish and Wildlife Service grizzly bear biologist Wayne Kasworm who explains what options are available and how he helped successfully reintroduce grizzly bears to the Cabinet Mountains bordering Montana and Idaho.
On the other side of the spectrum Chelan County Commissioner Keith Goehner and Cliff Courtney, a longtime outfitter, guide and owner of the Stehekin Valley Ranch, express some valid concerns about the proposed reintroduction of these top tier predators. www.stehekinvalleyranch.com
