Tribal leaders in Montana, the U.S. and Canada say Wyoming’s unanimous decision to hunt up to 22 grizzly bears outside Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks this year strikes a devastating blow to tribal communities.

On a press conference call Wednesday, tribal leaders said they were not adequately consulted about management of an animal they consider sacred.

The research is part of ongoing efforts to monitor the population of grizzly bears and black bears in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.

BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) — A recent report says visitors to Yellowstone National Park spent nearly $500 million last year in neighboring towns to the wilderness recreation area.

The world's largest active geyser has erupted three times in the past two months at Yellowstone National Park, leaving scientists puzzled by the sudden and relatively frequent explosions.
