Environmentalists Sue for Bear Attacks on Humans in Western US

Let it never be said that environmentalists won’t ever miss an opportunity to expand wild animal populations (in this case bears) in order to increase the likelihood of contact with humans in order to kill them.

The Associated Press reports that the Center for Biological Diversity filed a lawsuit in Montana federal court seeking to enhance bear populations by getting them declared endangered species in the western states of California, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, Nevada and Oregon citing enhanced bear populations in the Northern Rockies as justification for the group’s tort.

Environmentalists file lawsuits to expand legal protections for certain animal species for no other reason than to ensure more animal attacks on humans. The end result is that more bears reduces the food supply so they, in turn, seek food in human population centers or increases the likelihood of contact with humans in federal parks. If bears are declared endangered species that also prevents hunting for them.
