Colorado: Rubber ammo off table for wolf hazing after ruling
From The Daily Sentinel in Grand Junction, Colorado:
State agricultural producers no longer can use rubber ammunition to drive off gray wolves and protect livestock, as a result of a ruling that restored federal protections for the animals.
The Colorado Parks and Wildlife Commission last week amended the measures it allows to haze wolves, consistent with guidance it received from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service after a federal judge’s ruling in February. The judge had vacated a Fish and Wildlife Service decision removing Endangered Species Act protections for gray wolves in states including Colorado, restoring those protections and returning authority over the animals to the Fish and Wildlife Service.
