Will Colorado be allowed to kill its new endangered wolves? Maybe

1 min read


It might seem counterintuitive to be thinking about killing off animals that a state is actively trying to reintroduce into the wild, but right now Colorado Parks and Wildlife is exploring that option. 

Right now wolves are listed as endangered and protected, meaning killing one will bring down the full force of the legal system on someone’s head. But with something called a 10(J) amendment that would suddenly become a possible legal action, provided the right hoops were jumped through first. 

“That gives flexibility in managing those rules that wouldn’t otherwise be afforded in an endangered species,” Marj Nelson, Deputy Assistant Regional Director for Ecological Services in the Mountain Prairie Region with Fish and Wildlife Service explained about 10(J).
