“In Historic Move, Colorado Voters Decide To Reintroduce Gray Wolves”

“In Colorado, a historic ballot measure to force the state to reintroduce gray wolves has passed by the slimmest of margins.

Proposition 114 directs state wildlife managers to bring wolves back to Colorado's western mountains by 2024. Supporters suspected it would sail to victory, but voters appear wary of wolves. By the time opponents conceded the race, the initiative was only ahead by half of 1 percentage point.

Rob Edward, who led the ballot campaign for the Rocky Mountain Wolf Action Fund, called the win “a nail-biter,” but said it still counts.”
