Letter to the Editor: Comments on wolves appreciated

Listen to this post

Dear Editor:
Sean, I wanted to thank you for your comments in last week’s “From My Window” column about the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Commission saying no to wolves.

As a member of the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Commission, I voted in favor of the resolution opposing the intentional release of any wolves in Colorado.
The vote was seven in favor and four against the resolution.
I was saddened that we (the commission) didn’t have a unanimous vote.
That just tells me there is much work to be done in terms of accurate information and ongoing education about wolves and the devastation they can cause.
Thanks again for your words of support and your firsthand knowledge of the reality of what happened when wolves were reintroduced in the Yellowstone area.
