    The US government has announced that grizzly bears living in and around the famous Yellowstone National Park will no longer be protected as an endangered species.

    This means people in states surrounding the park may be able to hunt the bears.

    Some public land that is part of the grizzly’s natural habitat may also be opened to oil and gas exploration.
