CPW Releases first 5 wolves into Colorado

On December 18, 2023 Colorado Parks and Wildlife released the initial five gray wolves into Colorado. This release onto state-owned public lands in Grand County has begun in accordance with Proposition 114 which required releases to begin by December 31 of this year. Pursuant to an agreement with Oregon, Colorado may capture up to 10 wolves from that state. The releases on December 18 were of wolves captured in Oregon. Below is CPW’s news release that provides detail, and below that is a link to the Colorado Wolf Restoration and Management Plan which we had posted upon its adoption by the Parks and Wildlife Commission earlier this year.
