Colorado reports first litter of gray wolf pups in 80 years

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

Colorado has reported its first litter of gray wolf pups in 80 years, a major milestone in the US state's efforts to reintroduce the iconic species even as it stands imperiled in other parts of the country.

Between June 4 and June 8, a state biologist and a wildlife manager independently reported visual confirmation that "John" and "Jane," known collared wolves, were seen with three young.

The observations were made at dusk or dawn from a distance of around two miles from the den site, so as not to interfere with the pack.

It is not known if the three pups spotted are the only offspring. Litters typically consist of four to six pups.
