JACKSON COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) — A recent sighting of a possibly Gray Wolf in Jackson County has stirred up an old debate about reintroducing wolves to Colorado. Members of The Rocky Mountain Wolf Action Fund are currently gathering signatures to get a measure on the 2020 ballot to do that.

Here in the Western U.S., spoiled ranchers get subsidies to graze on public lands, while demanding wolves, coyotes, mountain lions and other native wildlife are slaughtered for them. This must stop. Get another way to make a living–stop your killing–
