Until 2005, the government has been protecting grizzlies as a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act. Except under life-threatening circumstances, ranchers and hunters weren’t allowed to kill them. However, since grizzlies were classified as endangered, they have tripled in numbers. They have since been removed from the list.
From 1975 to 2005, Grizzly bears were listed as a threatened species. And in 2007, the Yellowstone population was declared recovered and taken off the list of threatened species. There are an estimated 1,000 to 1,200 grizzly bears in the lower 48 states, and about 30,000 in Alaska.
