    Wait, is this the one that was tracked in RMNP or a different one?

  2. avatar Jeff says:

    I don’t think any have been confirmed in RMNP. A black uncollared wolf was filmed south on Saratoga, WY near Walden, CO last year. This one went throughout WY, over to SE ID, through NE UT and then to central CO near Vail.

    This site had a link to an articel that said they’d found wolf tracks in RMNP a few days ago.

    The wolf is now (3/23/09) back in North Central Colorado. However the data on the GPS collar is always two weeks old, so who knows where she is now…now that you mention tracks in RMNP I do recall reading something about those, but I guess it isn’t hard enough evidence as compared to the wolf near Walden, CO. Watching that video made me a believer.

    If only she had found a male! Rocky Mountain National Park could use a few as could most of the rest of Colorado.

    I’m hoping she settles east of Craig, CO somewhere, there is a tremendous number of deer and elk in that area and a lot of remote forest service and BLM lands. Of all my driving throughout the west the road from Baggs, Wyomnig to Craig, CO might just be one of the richest deer and elk areas in the U.S.

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."
