US won't restore Yellowstone grizzly bear protections

BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - U.S. officials say they will not restore federal protections for Yellowstone-area grizzly bears despite a court ruling that called into question the government's rationale for placing the animals under state management.Friday's announcement follows a months-long review of a decision last year to lift the protections for about 700 bears in and around Yellowstone National Park.
