It’s healthier than ever with an estimated 2300 moose across the state. While other states are grappling with why their herds are shrinking, Colorado is studying the population’s fast growth.

When wildlife are a danger to livestock or people, it’s up to the state’s Parks and Wildlife agency to put them down. Last year about 45 wild animals were shot or euthanized in the Muddy Creek area of Delta and Gunnison counties – mostly for predation of sheep.</p><p></p> Thu, 13 Jun 2013 23:32:44 +0000 Marty Durlin 11719 at http://kvnf.org Black Bear Shot by CO Parks & Wildlife
