ENDANGERED SPECIES -- As in Washington and Oregon, wolves will have to find their own way back into Colorado.
Colorado wildlife commission nixes release of wolves into state
The Colorado Wildlife Commission voted 7-4 to reject any releases of both Mexican and gray wolves into the state, a pre-emptory effort to block any attempt by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to restore populations of the Mexican gray wolf that includes southwestern Colorado as habitat for the species.
However, the Commission confirmed that the state would protect any wolves that wander into the state.
