“The damage is evident and the demise of the griz imminent, yet we continue our war cries while breeding our weapons,” Stone-Manning wrote. “We can bicker and moan at each other in our battle about what is going to help the bear now, but ultimately we need to look at maps less, crunch numbers less, and begin to wage war on overpopulation.”
She lamented in the article — titled “On grizzlies, babies and a shrinking land” — about the loss of land available to the bears, writing Americans’ “victory in conquering the West was Pyrrhic” and that “the most we can do for the grizzly is ensure that it has plenty of space to thrive in, not merely survive in.”
The article continued:
We have annexed too much space, and we aren’t contemplating any withdrawal. In fact, we keep marching on. Now we are turning the weapon of overpopulation onto ourselves. What would the demise of the grizzly predict about our lives? The population of the United States has nearly doubled since 1940. There are many folks where I live in Montana who knew a different Montana in 1940 than they know today. The local hillsides look like war zones now.
