Wanted: Wolves in Colorado

Document Actions
Letter - From the May 27, 2013 issue by Walt Foutz

Being an avid elk hunter in Colorado, I hope the trapping and hunting pressure on wolves in Wyoming brings some of them here ("Wolf bycatch," HCN, 4/29/13). The presence of wolves in Colorado might reduce the number of cattle that overgraze national forest land and ruin the riparian habitat for six months of the year, and would surely wipe out chronic wasting disease in our big game herds in short order. The presence of wolves in Colorado would improve the big game hunting experience and the habitat.
