According to Colorado Parks and Wildlife, a wolf was likely spotted in Colorado. Colorado Parks and Wildlife is currently working with their biologists to confirm the sighting. Wolves are not currently recognized as an established Colorado species.

Note that the wolf in the photo is wearing a tracking collar. This should make determining the exact location of the sighting more feasible, as well as determining where the wolf came from before entering Colorado.

Governor Polis made several comments about the recent wolf sightings via Facebook, including a statement about how wolves seem to be “returning to its historic homeland in Colorado.”
