Wolf back in Colorado
Black wolf in Big Horns

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service reports this week that the female wolf that has roamed in five states, raising some hopes and expectations from Colorado wolf advocates, then venturing back into Wyoming and dashing those hopes, has once again been located back in Colorado.

The female wolf had dispersed from southwestern Montana last year before traveling through Wyoming, southeastern Idaho, northeastern Utah, northern Colorado, and then back to south central Wyoming. She was recently located again in north central Colorado, FWS reported.

FWS also reported: "During an elk survey flight, a Wyoming Game and Fish Department biologist took aerial photos of a single black wolf near the Big Horn Mountains. This sighting was in a similar area where a black wolf has been seen on several occasions. In one of the photos, the wolf appeared to be radio collared. We’ll listen for missing frequencies on future telemetry flights."
