New Law Protects Bears, Cougars And Wolves

(Springfield, IL) -- A new law will help protect wolves, cougars and bears in Illinois. The three species will be added to state's list of protected species. All three animals are rare in Illinois and Chris Young with the Department of Natural Resources says the new law will help prepare the agency for when they do show up. The guidelines will help balance public safety with managing their populations if they do grow.
