If Amendment 114 passes, the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Commission will be required to develop a plan to reintroduce and manage gray wolf populations to protect areas by the end of 2023. The amendment is intended to replicate the success of reintroducing gray wolves in Yellowstone National Park and prevent environmental degradation caused by overgrazing deer and moose. The amendment is supported by Dave Parsons, a former member of the Mexican Wolf Recovery Program, and by organizations such as the Global Indigenous Council and the Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility. It is opposed by Utah State Rep. Logan Wilde and by organizations such as Colorado Wool Growers Association and the Rocky Mountain Farmers Union.”
