West Slope lawmaker tries to pump the brakes on Colorado wolf reintroduction
From the Colorado Sun:
Colorado State Sen. Kerry Donovan wants to slow the roll on wolf reintroduction.
The Vail Democrat, who represents seven Western Slope counties, has crafted legislation she hopes to submit on Friday that allows Colorado Parks and Wildlife to manage wolves, but would postpone any reintroduction efforts until money is found to reimburse ranchers who lose livestock to wolves. The bill would cancel reintroduction outright if wildlife officials determine that the state already has a “self-sustaining population” of gray wolves.
