GRAND TETON NATIONAL PARK – A US District Court Judge in Missoula last week put a stop to the start of Wyoming’s grizzly hunt that was supposed to kick off this weekend.

Judge Dana Christensen granted a two-week temporary restraining order, giving Native American tribes and environmental groups more time to make their case.
