Protect Colorado's Carnivores

Persecuting Colorado’s majestic native carnivores is wrong. So, when Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) hired the federal wildlife-killing program, Wildlife Services, to kill black bears and mountain lions in a misguided attempt to artificially boost mule deer numbers, Guardians filed three lawsuits to stop the deeply flawed plans. So far, our pending state lawsuit delayed implementation of CPW’s killing plans across a 4,894-square-mile expanse in Colorado and one of our federal lawsuits is temporarily preventing Wildlife Services from killing these animals. Now it’s time for Colorado’s Governor to stop the killing plans for good.
