Officials welcome return of wolves to northwest Colorado

Posted in

Colorado wildlife officials have found evidence of at least six wolves in the state's northwest region, a second indication of a return by the animals after a long absence. Democratic Gov. Jared Polis issued a statement Wednesday confirming the Colorado Parks and Wildlife discovery and asking residents to make room for the wolves. State wildlife officers found a cow carcass Sunday. Officials say there was evidence of wolves in the same area two weeks ago. A question regarding whether to reintroduce endangered gray wolves on public land by the end of 2023 will appear on the November ballot.
