Grizzly Deaths in Yellowstone Region on Normal Pace: Experts

According to numbers tallied by the Interagency Grizzly Bear Study Team, ten grizzlies have been killed this year, with at least eight caused by humans. Last year seven grizzlies had been killed at this time, while 13 had been killed at this time in 2008.

The bigger issue: the number of females killed. So far this year only two females have been killed, and that bodes well for the stabilization of the grizzly population in the region.
