Wolf introduction in CO

Gents,

Those who make the choices, are having a meeting about the future introduction of possibly 2 subspecies of wolves in Colorado, on Jan 13-14.

This is pressure, emails, petitions and politics from OUTSIDE Colorado moving this forward.

Help us out, send an email stating you choose option 2, NO introduction/re-introduction of any wolf species in CO to:

[email protected]

We all saw what happened in ID, MT and WY, and the increasing problems everywhere else. Lets make our voices heard this time!

    Just emailed CO, lots of info with the MN DNR's frustration for them to look up.

    Chiro please pass this on to your MN brethren who aren't on here or social media. Every email counts.

    As big as tourist hunting and agriculture are hear it will be a drawn out legal battle.

    Likely wind up the same as elsewhere though.

    Edit to add, I did send an e- mail.
    My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.

    Is there any way to train the wolves to just eat hippies?

    The biggest supporter of wolves are those who never have to put up with them.

    Thanks for the heads up. I'll send an email asking that this NOT go forward.

    [ETA] Done!

    Gun control laws make about as much sense as taking ex-lax to cure a cough.

    If they get away with that, they will be sending rattlesnakes to Texas and mosquitoes to Florida, next.

    My unsubstantiated guess would be Rocky Mountain National Park.

    Sorry to say there were already wolves there. One was killed on I 70'a couple years ago....... From the Yellowstone pack. Well it's the 3 s's time. Shoot, shovel, and shut up! Most are pretty good with the first 2.

    Well the canadian grey wolves would be introduced to Rocky Mountain Nat Park, the Mexican grey wolf would likely be introduced in the southern part of the state.

    Yes, they ARE here, but the state refuses to say so. Wolves spreading is a lot different then several packs being forced on us on top of the ones that are moving.

    Neither species can historically call Colorado home. They say the Mexican MAY have stepped foot in extreme southern CO, but no real evidence. The original range was southern NM and AZ and west TX. The wolf that originally did live in the Rockies was much smaller then the ones they are INTRODUCING. The canadians evolved to kill caribou and moose. Elk, deer and our smaller Shiras moose are no match for them. And in the places that had timber wolves, which are much closer to what we had, the canadians are killing/pushing them out of their native ranges.

    It was a PC experiment gone wrong, but the anti's realize we can't hunt, if there is nothing left to hunt. They get their way, albeit in a way that you'd think is counter productive. They'd rather have no animals then humans hunting animals.

    When I was a kid, I remember viewing a diorama that featured the last known grey wolf (stuffed, of course) that was killed in Texas, circa 1886. It was a very impressive creature that, by all accounts, wreaked havoc on livestock and game animals to the point that it was finally exterminated, or forced to move on.

    For whatever good it did I emailed them. All I said was they shouldn't let someone with an Agenda control their management of wildlife and to look at the other states that did this. But they probably already have heard this ten dozen times. But they just heard it again.

    A Sgt. from the CHP stopped in our shop in Georgetown and told us it was killed between us and Idaho Springs, probably 10 years ago.

    On my first hunting trip to Chapleau , Ontario in 1960, we were camped on the Pemache (sp) River, first time I ever heard wolfs howl, I remember thinking I'm really in a true wilderness.

    And that, right there, is the emotionally-driven insanity of it.
