Reintroduction and Management of Gray Wolves
Colorado Ballot Measure - Proposition 114
Election: Nov. 3, 2020 (General)
Categories:Animals and Wildlife
The initiative requires the Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) Commission to develop a plan to restore and manage gray wolves in Colorado. In doing so, the commission must hold statewide hearings to gather information to inform the plan. CPW must take the steps necessary to begin gray wolf reintroduction by December 31, 2023, on designated lands west of the Continental Divide in Colorado that the commission determines are consistent with its plan to restore and manage gray wolves. CPW is further required to assist landowners in preventing and resolving conflicts between gray wolves and livestock, and to compensate livestock owners for any losses of livestock caused by gray wolves
Shall there be a change to the Colorado Revised Statutes concerning the restoration of gray wolves through their reintroduction on designated lands in Colorado located west of the continental divide, and, in connection therewith, requiring the Colorado parks and wildlife commission, after holding statewide hearings and using scientific data, to implement a plan to restore and manage gray wolves; prohibiting the commission from imposing any land, water, or resource use restrictions on private landowners to further the plan; and requiring the commission to fairly compensate owners for losses of livestock caused by gray wolves?
A "yes" vote on Proposition 114 means that the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Commission will develop a plan to reintroduce and manage gray wolves west of the Continental Divide.
A "no" vote on Proposition 114 means that Colorado will not be required to reintroduce gray wolves.
