Mark Montgomery: Wolves in Colorado

Dear Editor,  

I have lived in Routt County a very long time. I am an avid outdoorsman, and in my time here, I have personally witnessed six wolf sightings since the early ’80s. Around the same time local ranchers reported various wolf sightings in Routt County, and some even say they have come in close range of packs of wolves. In addition to that I have come across many tracks, which I believe to be wolf tracks, and heard their calls.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife has known about this for more than 40 years. Yes, 40 years. Wolves are here and have been here for a long time. The subject is now just turning political, which is sad.
