From the Sopris Sun:
On Monday, Dec. 18, Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) released five gray wolves from Oregon onto public land in Grand County.
It was a historic moment, putting into motion a ballot measure that voters in the Centennial State decided on back in 2020, with a narrow margin. Much support came from voters on the Front Range, but the wolves were reintroduced here on the Western Slope. Colorado now joins the ranks of several other states inhabited by wild wolves, including Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, California, Washington, Oregon, Minnesota and Wisconsin.
