    Re: Utah national parks to open Saturday with state aid

    In-bred numbers, as described by the RMCP and Canadian Park Rangers..
    On another note, I know of no cubs from polar and grizzly bears surviving yet..
    I wonder if these climate deniers know where the Polar bears came from.

    Do you really think Grizzly bears are around the Milk River region of Alberta? The area they are most likely talking about is the foothills and mountain areas of South Western Alberta. It is still a large area

    I believe the map in the PDF might indicate the region they are talking about. On Page 2 it indicates it has one of the highest population densities of Grizzly bears in Alberta

    And congress doesnt have the power to legislate such things.

    We appreciate your opinion (and appreciate that it is likely reasoned). It his, however, an opinion which should not be confused with fact.

    So you're one of those huh. Live in a house made of wood but want to stop all logging. Drive a car but want to stop oil wells. Rely on 1000 mined materials but want to stop mining.

    That is hardly a personal attack. We are merely getting into a disagreement of federal authority rather than the topic at hand. I was merely challenging the notion that declaring the government is out-of-bounds for operating a park is but your personal opinion. We could have a whole discussion of federal government authority, which I obviously see as much broader than you, but that is a bit of a tangent from the topic at hand.

    Your post was condescending. That makes it a personal attack.

    You are the one that wants to expand park buffer zones to the Canadian border not me.
