Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT) grilled Rep. Deb Haaland (D-NM), President Joe Biden’s nominee to run the Department of the Interior (DOI), on her thoughts about wildlife management during a confirmation hearing Tuesday.

Daines asked Haaland about the Endangered Species Act and whether she supports returning wildlife management to the states during an Energy Committee hearing on Haaland’s qualifications to serve as DOI secretary.

Haaland said that science should “of course” serve as the basis for those decisions.
The Montana conservative asked Haaland if she knew the Grizzly Bear’s recovery period in the greater Yellowstone ecosystem, to which she said that she did not.

Daines said in response that the “most conservative estimate” reveals the grizzly bear population is well above the recovery period to take the bear species off of the endangered species list and allow states such as Montana to better manage their wildlife.

He further noted that, despite the grizzly bear’s population growth, Haaland cosponsored legislation providing federal protections to grizzly bears “in perpetuity.”

Daines asked Haaland, “Why would you sponsor a bill like that when the science tells us the bear numbers are well above the recovery target?”

“Uh, I imagine at the time I was caring about the bears,” Haaland responded.

Daines also said during the hearing that he remains concerned with advancing Haaland’s nomination.

“The track record, the ideology in the past, I think, will perpetuate more divisiveness and will certainly harm Montana’s economy. That’s why I have some concerns,” he said.

“Puzzling how the Congresswoman wasn’t better prepared for this question as grizzly management was discussed in our one on one meeting, and how she also has cosponsored legislation related to it,” Daines told Breitbart News in an exclusive comment. “The Congresswoman’s failure to commit to science and delist the grizzly for public safety and wildlife habitat is very concerning.”

Bayern Munich CONFIRM Erling Haaland transfer interest as Hansi Flick claims deal ‘very much possible’ for Dortmund star

BAYERN MUNICH confirmed their interest in Erling Haaland as manager Hansi Flick admitted a transfer is ‘very much possible’.

Star striker Haaland has emerged as one of the hottest commodities in Europe, and put it on full display against the German champions.

He scored twice in nine minutes to stun Bayern into an early deficit.

But the match ended 4-2, thanks to a hat-trick from hitman Robert Lewandowski.

His manager Flick was asked about Haaland one day replacing Lewandowski, with a deal far from out the picture.

He told Sky Germany before the game: "Very, very much is possible in life, nothing can be ruled out.

"But that is a long way off. He has a long-term contract in Dortmund and is an option for many top clubs."

Bayern prized Lewandowski away from their rivals in 2014, having also done the same with Mario Gotze and Mats Hummels.

But Gotze and Hummels both ended up returning to Dortmund.

Bayern are not the only ones interested in 20-year-old Haaland, who improved to 19 goals in as many Bundesliga games.

Manchester United last season failed in a move for the forward, despite Ole Gunnar Solskjaer meeting with the player.

And now United are joined by City and Chelsea in the pursuit for the serial goalscorer.

Real Madrid are also linked with Haaland, with the view of replacing frontman Karim Benzema, 34.

Haaland's contract expires in 2024, but a £65million release clause is understood to come into play two years beforehand.

But any buyers looking to act fast in next summer's window can be expected to front £150m for Dortmund's prize possession.

As a result, Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke does not expect any mega-money offers for Haaland or strike partner Jadon Sancho, 20.

Watzke said: “Overall, I don't think that crazy things will happen."
