Bud Werner Memorial Library presents a free screening of Wild West Shorts, five new short documentaries about the iconic wildlife of the West from the 2018 International Wildlife Film Festival, at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 7 in Library Hall. The films include: “Canis Lupus Colorado” by Eric Bendick and Thomas Winston, the story of the past, present and future of Colorado’s now extinct native wolf population; “Dodging Extinction: The Black-Footed Ferret” by Douglas Canfield, about an effort to recover ferrets and get them off the Endangered Species List; “Rancheros del Jaguar” by Sara Matasick, about traditional cattle ranchers in Sonora, Mexico who are changing their relationships with the jaguars they have historically persecuted; “Drive Them Buffalo” by Daniel Glick, an intimate look at the only indigenous tribal-led buffalo drive in North America; and “Wildlife and the Wall” by Ben Masters, about how construction of a USA-Mexico border wall would have a huge impact on wildlife.
