Colorado provides residents and visitors with unmatched natural beauty and exceptional opportunities. These components drive our economy and contribute to our well-being. This is the Colorado way of life. Activists are seeking to destroy these values we hold dear through a misguided attempt to introduce wolves into the state.

Proposition 114

  • Proposition 114 will be on your ballot in 2020.

  • The measure will forcibly introduce wolves onto Colorado’s Western Slope against the advice of wildlife experts.

  • Existing wildlife, including threatened and endangered species, will be put in severe danger. Wolves prey on whatever they find and introduce diseases that are fatal to other species.

  • Wolves don’t recognize property boundaries and can range hundreds of miles pioneering new territories, creating conflicts with other animals and humans on both private and public land.

  • Wolves will pose a direct and serious threat to humans, livestock, and domestic pets.

  • Any perceived benefits of wolf introduction are temporary and are greatly offset by the long-term damage caused by wolves.

  • Wolf packs travel vast distances, and individual pack territories can cover 50-1,000 square miles.

Background

  • Today, Colorado is home to some of North America’s most beloved elk and deer herds and a small but cherished population of moose.

  • Wolves have severely impacted elk and moose herds in the northern Rockies, even killing the last of Idaho’s caribou herd. As a result of careful management by our state game agency, elk, deer, moose, and other wildlife are thriving on the Western Slope.

  • Colorado agriculture is one of the state’s primary economic drivers, contributing billions of dollars to the state’s economy annually, and providing open space and habitat for Colorado wildlife.

  • Tourism is one of our state’s main draws. Many tourists visit Colorado to view our state’s natural beauty and abundant wildlife.

  • Wolves pass fatal diseases to other wildlife populations, kill wildlife, and prey on livestock and domestic pets.

  • The forcible introduction of wolves threatens the natural beauty that we all love so much about Colorado.

  • Wolves are already naturally expanding their range into Colorado as a result of the wolf introduction in the northern Rockies.
