Reintroduction of gray wolves takes a step closer; recommendations face resistance

The two sets of recommendations came from working groups that have been meeting for a year.

COLORADO, USA — The Colorado Parks and Wildlife Commission began review Wednesday of one of two major sets of recommendations on how the state will implement a largely Front Range voter-approved measure from 2018 to reintroduce gray wolves into western Colorado.

The two sets of recommendations came from working groups that have been meeting for a year: A technical working group, primarily focused on scientific literature reviews and scientific research, and a stakeholder advisory group charged with looking at issues, such as logistics, funding and herd management.

The technical group, known as TWG, presented its recommendations to the commission on the first day of the its two-day June meeting held in Buena Vista.

But one of the recommendations is already drawing resistance from long-time supporters of wolf reintroduction.
