CPW provides guidance on wolf restoration and management plan at April meeting
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KJCT) - After five public meetings around the state, Colorado Parks and Wildlife provided staff with the Revised Draft Wolf Restoration and Management, all based on public comment.
One proposed change is that compensation for livestock killed by wolves would be capped at $15,000 per animal. That doesn’t include veterinary expenses for livestock or guarding and herding animals. It could total up to $30,000 per animal.
The Final Wolf Restoration and Management Plan and associated regulations are expected to be adopted at the next commission meeting on May 3-4 in Glenwood Springs.
