Wolf cameras on in Rocky Mtn Nat’l Park

ROCKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK, Colo. (AP) _ The Denver Zoo has set up cameras throughout Rocky Mountain National Park to try to confirm the sighting of a wolf.

Park volunteers reported seeing a wolf on December 4th in the Moraine Park area but the sighting hasn’t been confirmed. Large paw prints typical of a wolf also have been reported.

Park spokesman Larry Frederick says if there is a wolf in the park, it would have to be protected as a member of a federally designated endangered species.

Environmentalists and wildlife officials have said wolves from nearby states would likely cross into Colorado eventually.
