Default Yellowstone wolf tracked to Colorado

Because discussions on wolves are only slightly less frequent than the adequacy of the .270, here's a recent article from the Denver Post:

I figure since ID., WY., and MT. aren't allowed to hunt the wolves that it is only a matter of time before CO. is added to the list of states that have enough wolves that hunters and bioligists will be among those begging to allow some hunting of them to control the numbers.

Thats what we do up here in the Bighorns. The buggers are starting to show up here too. One even got his picture in the paper not long ago when someone photographed him from a small plane.

All the bunny huggers who don't want hunters to kill wolves should think about natures methods of dealing with it.

A quote from the article:
Yellowstone officials said that during the past year, distemper, mange and wolves killing each other were the likely causes of the population decline.
Wolves often kill each other over competition for food or territory, and population density could contribute to an increase in wolf-on-wolf mortality.
This was in an area of the park where wolf density was exceptionally high.

Oh boy... that isn't good news. Let's hope that the powers that be begin to open their eyes to this issue.

I would not doubt they are very happy with the situation. Someone got a big pat on the back with their pet project.

I like the way you think and couldn't agree more.

I have found a couple dead wolves over the last year. They all showed signs of being killed by other wolves, Holes in skulls from bites, etc.... They were all smaller wolves, so either some inner pack fighting, or overcrowding causing competition for resources.
