Moose push into Oregon, Grizzlies next to come?

  Northeastern Oregon's swelling moose population could prove increasingly tempting to the mighty silver-tipped bears, said Michelle Dennehy, spokeswoman for the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. The region has adequate habitat for 10 times the number of moose now living here, she said. But some biologists argue that grizzlies have no way of knowing that Oregon's moose are here. Chris Servheen, grizzly recovery coordinator for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in Missoula, Mont., is among those who don't expect grizzlies to show up any time soon. "I think it's unlikely we are going to get any back in Oregon in the near term," he said. Moose enter Oregon, so are grizzlies next? - Sports: Mid-Columbia | Tri-City Herald : Mid-Columbia news .
