Division Of Wildlife Exploring Return Of Wolves To Colorado

With the likelihood that wolves will be moving into the state, the Colorado Division of Wildlife wants public input into its management plan for the animal. The predator could move into the state as the population expands beyond introduction sites near Yellowstone National Park.

Last year, a dead animal was found on Interstate 70 in Colorado. That helped spur the creation of a panel to make plans for the wolf's appearance here. Recommendations from the panel will help formulate a management plan for the population of wolves north of Interstate 70, which are expected to be removed from the endangered species list.

However, parts of the plan could change after a judge, Tuesday, rescinded a 2003 rule that allows wolves to be shot if attacking livestock.
