Parks and Wildlife Investigates Colorado’s First Wolf Kill in Over 70 Years
In November of 2020, voters in Colorado narrowly passed a measure to reintroduce wolves to the forests of the Centennial State. Just over one year later, Colorado Parks and Wildlife seem to be investigating their first report of a wolf kill in more than 70 years.
The group bringing the claim to Colorado Parks and Wildlife's attention is the Colorado Cattleman's Association.
