No wolf DNA found in suspected wolf scat.

The claims that a wolf pack has been living on a large ranch have been seen with skepticism by some.  It appears evidence, other than sightings of an individual, indicates that there is no pack present.

It doesn’t help that every wolf that ventures to the southern part of Wyoming is killed either.

Tests offer no proof of a wolf pack living in Colorado.

    Wolves will naturally move int Colorado on their own sooner or later. I would like to see hundreds of wolves there in years to come. They have an endless food supply in Colorado.

  2. Linda Hunter says:

    Sounds like they want to back off on the claim . . . the result seems like it was non-conclusive. Well perhaps the ranch was getting too many unwanted human visitors as well.

  3. Save bears says:

    Nothing is endless.

  4. ProWolf in WY says:

    They will show up sooner or later in packs.

‎"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."
