PREDATORS — WildEarth Guardians will have their day in court in a lawsuit against the National Park Service for not considering reintroduction of wolves into Rocky Mountain National Park as an option for controlling elk numbers.
Park officials have been using sharpshooters to thin the elk herd over the past few years.
WildEarth says wolves should have been introduced to do the culling naturally.
Biologists say the park is to too small to expect the wolves to stay put and not cause issues elswhere.
WildEarth said we'll see you in court.
The 10th Circuit Court of Appeals is hearing a case Thursday on the University of Colorado campus in Boulder.
