BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) - A federal judge has decided to continue delaying the sale of timber on up to four square miles of National Forest Service land along Hebgen Lake, ruling against two federal agencies that asked for the injunction to be thrown out.

Alliance for the Wild Rockies and Native Ecosystems Council filed suit in 2013 to stop the logging plans, saying the sale poses a threat to grizzly bears and Canadian Lynx.

The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports (https://bit.ly/1KZiZyZ ) the judge ruled Monday that the Forest Service and Fish and Wildlife Service did not do enough to determine the projects impact on wildlife. This decision comes after the judge turned the groups away in December, again saying they had not studied the impact thoroughly enough.
