Tweet Sheet: Stop the Wyoming Trophy Hunt of Yellowstone Grizzly Bears


1) Wildlife watching tourists contribute 1.8x as much as hunters to #Wyoming economy yet their voices ignored as state preps for #TrophyHunting of grizzlies outside of #Yellowstone #GrandTetons National Parks. #NoGrizHunt #WhatsWrongWithWY #TW @GovMattMead pic.twitter.com/sjkqVazmHU

2) .@YellowstoneNPS SELLS OUT Park grizzly bears! Has no concerns about #Wyoming trophy hunt! Bears that leave National Parks can be killed outside park boundaries. #NoGrizHunt #WhatsWrongWithWY #FindYourPark #TrophyHunting #TW πŸ’”πŸ» https://bit.ly/2J5OvTs

3) As soon as 1st day of September, 24 vulnerable grizzly bears could be killed in #Wyoming for a trophy on a wall.  Sign to tell .@GovMattMead to step in and stop #Yellowstone grizzly trophy hunt! #NoGrizHunt #WhatsWrongWithWY #TW https://bit.ly/2HsM1hD pic.twitter.com/VUmvZxtpSN

4) Wyoming is using #TrophyHunting to extinguish any chance of grizzlies colonizing potential suitable habitat in Uinta Mountains of Utah, Bighorn Mountains of #Wyoming. #NoGrizHunt #WhatsWrongWithWY #endangeredspecies #TW https://bit.ly/2uZnpuk

5) #Wyoming will allow #TrophyHunting of grizzly bears that leave #Yellowstone and #GrandTetons National Parks this fall! Even tho wildlife watching tourists contribute 1.8x as much as hunters! πŸ»πŸ’” #WhatsWrongWithWY #NoGrizHunt #TW Why @wyomingtourism? pic.twitter.com/Khe9rGFnOW


6) WUT?! Wyoming wants to hunt 24 grizzlies this fall. Tell @govmattmead hunting and baiting are how grizzlies ended up endangered to begin with. Let’s focus on coexisting with these animals, not killing them for a trophy. #whatswrongwithWY #NoGrizHunt #TW https://sc.org/2Idzgqg

7) .@GovMattMead Call off Wyoming trophy hunt of #Yellowstone grizzlies that leave safety of national parks. 24 bears to be killed this fall! Wildlife watchers contribute 1.8x more to Wyoming's economy than hunters! #NoGrizHunt #WhatsWrongWithWY #TW pic.twitter.com/RbDdi5cBSh

8) Other than in small buffer proposed around part of Grand Teton, any grizzly bear that steps over national park boundaries could be shot πŸ’”πŸ» #Yellowstone #FindYourPark #Wyoming #NoGrizHunt #WhatsWrongWithWY #BanTrophyHunting #TW https://bit.ly/2JEzHM3  pic.twitter.com/9UkGJqH5Bv

10) Killing just one female could impact the local grizzly population for the next decade; killing 14 could be devastating. #NoGrizHunt #WhatsWrongWithWY #ThatsWY #BanTrophyHunting #TW @GovMattMead πŸ»πŸΎπŸ’”https://bit.ly/2HaGQTi pic.twitter.com/I754aqb1R1

13) Grizzly bears don't cause significant conflicts w/livestock. Statistically speaking, zero livestock died from grizzly predation. So why is #Wyoming killing 24 of them outside of #Yellowstone? https://bit.ly/2GRTCJA  #NoGrizHunt #WhatsWrongWithWY #TW 🐻 pic.twitter.com/HUMHwvj6WR

14) Sign ✍️ and share. Tell Wyoming Governor Mead to put a halt to this short-sighted proposal to bait and kill Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem grizzly bears. #NoGrizHunt #WhatsWrongWithWY #ThatsWY #TW @GovMattMead πŸ»πŸ’” https://bit.ly/2qoZYpB pic.twitter.com/GjJI3dSTCB

16) πŸš¨ For the first time in half a century, # Wyoming is planning a grizzly bear hunting season. ✍️ and RT to demand that these bears be safe from #TrophyHunting! 🚨 #NoGrizHunt #WhatsWrongWithWY #TW https://bit.ly/2Gr3RAb  pic.twitter.com/zj59NXBZ9Y

17) πŸš¨πŸš¨ #Wyoming is holding a trophy hunt of #Yellowstone grizzly bears this fall but working to hide it from tourists. Why is that @wyomingtourism? Bc people like me will go to Montana or BC instead? #NoGrizHunt #BanTrophyHunting #WhatsWrongWithWY #TW pic.twitter.com/WbgNWrARSe

18) Yellowstone-area grizzlies should NOT be hunted. Tell Wyoming's @GovMattMead to put an end to this senseless plan via @NRDC  https://on.nrdc.org/2uy2XQR 🐻❤️🐾 #NoGrizHunt #WhatsWrongWithWY #TW

19) There is nothing good to say about shooting a grizzly bear over piles of human food dumped into otherwise pristine wilderness for the purpose of easy trophy kill. #NoGrizHunt #WhatsWrongWithWY #ThatsWY #TrophyHunting @GovMattMead https://bit.ly/2GRTCJA pic.twitter.com/1Mt6hVQj50

20) Reject #TrophyHunting of #Yellowstone grizzly bears. 🐻🐻 #Wyoming will allow baiting of the bears and killing female bears, even if they have cubs. Sign to say NO! πŸ’” #NoGrizHunt #WhatsWrongWithWY #TW @GovMattMead https://bit.ly/2EEszLQ pic.twitter.com/5uU0B9SN9p


21) Hunting bears during fall when eating heavily to gain weight for hibernation costs precious energy. For females, having to flee hunters may negatively affect ability to successfully reproduce over her entire lifetime. #NoGrizHunt #WhatsWrongWithWY #TW πŸ»πŸ’” https://bit.ly/2ENin3C

22) #Wyoming Game and Fish now want to wage war on very grizzly bears that make #GrandTetons and #Yellowstone national parks their home —the same animals that make these places so special for the rest of us πŸ’”πŸ» #NoGrizHunt #WhatsWrongWithWY #TrophyHunting #TW https://bit.ly/2GRTCJA

23) If Wyoming and .@GovMattMead look at @WGFD’s own data, they’ll see the wildlife-watching economy is triple the state’s hunting economy. #ThatsWY it makes no sense to host a cruel grizzly trophy hunt. #NoGrizHunt #TW #WhatswrongwithWY pic.twitter.com/FwNMMSQo0c

24) Wyoming & Idaho’s aggressive plans for #TrophyHunting of remaining 700 or so #Yellowstone-area grizzly bears this year are unscientific and – unless stopped — will set bear conservation back by decades. #WhatsWrongWithWY #NoGrizHunt #BanTrophyHunting #TW https://bit.ly/2HhB7yx
