There is a new bill that will be heard in committee this Thursday which would allow wolf reintroductions only in those counties that voted in favor of the measure last election. This if enacted would allow only after an environmental impact study. Aspen, Telluride ,Durango and a few other "yuppy" areas would get to ENJOY ! This would exempt Moffat, Rio Blanco and Garfield counties and others in the NW...kinda neat idea but probably will not make it out of committee.

I like the sentiments, but I agree it isn’t going anywhere. If they turned them loose in La Plata or San Miguel, these rednecks here in Montezuma would be lined up on the county line looking to take a poke at one.

The good it would do is it would end introduction, Does anyone think an Aspen or Boulder resident would put up with a wolfy eating their poodle ? Kinda easy to inflict on others that which you would not tolerate yourself. Northwest Colorado has enough problems with power plants switching from coal, drought and other things beyond their control. Are there Rednecks in Montezuma County ? Hope so ! The old commissioners win San Miguel county were good friends: Gene Adams, Mike Young and Dwight Oliver.

Here’s a link to a recent article about some of the wrangling to come in the legislature.

There really isn’t anything new in it, but take a look at the map showing the counties that opposed the initiative. It’s striking.

Also note the comment that the woods are ready for woofs because we have successfully stocked their pantry with mooses.

Honestly, that would be kinda bitter sweet... go ahead, put them wolves in Denver, El Paso, Boulder, Larimer, Jefferson, Broomfield, Arapahoe and Adams counties... them fools voted for wolves, let them fools deal with them... La Plata, San Juan San Miguel they can have em to... Pitkin and Summit Counties would definately hurt my hunting, but again, them fools voted for em... let them fools have em!! Frikin wolves are a bad idea, worse than the damned invasive muscle's that we have to have boats checked for from one lake to another... sad times ahead ... sad times indeed!!!

Mike Young was my grandfather. Glad to hear that someone still remembers him!

SanJuan...Your grandpa was one heck of a guy. I use to go down to the basin and call coyotes. When he was county commissioner he bought several pieces of construction equipment from me. Many fond memories of him.

Having a chat with Kate Greenberg,
Colorado Commissioner of Agriculture this evening with the wolf introduction as one of the topics. At this point we are pressing them to follow the plan and not expedite the introduction. Should be interesting.

Honestly see no reason or zero reason to expedite the introduction... Gov Polis wants it as soon as possible to suit his agenda, but it's not like 90% of Coloradoans voted yes, it passed by a very narrow majority ... which to me indicates a very narrow want. Go slow, take all the time needed...

Met with Greensburg and she was not interested in hearing about the wolves. Was giving her some time to response but that didn't happen. So in response Rio Blanco County did this since the states lack of proper response is a response. Encourage other countries to join suit and push back on the BS introduction.
