Mountain Lion management

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - CPW wants to talk about mountain lion management.

They’ve scheduled 6 public meetings in Northwest Colorado to talk about stabilizing populations of the big cat. Management plans try to balance the environment’s capacity for these animals as well as recreation opportunities for hunters.

“We get reports about lions that are hit by cars that die in other ways, lions that have to be euthanized because they’ve attacked livestock. We manage wildlife populations in an attempt to keep them stable,” says Joe Lewandowski, Spokesperson for CPW.
