Gray Wolf Trapped in Colorado Was from Great Lakes Population, Feds Confirm

On April 3 a rancher in Elbert County found an animal resembling a wolf in a coyote trap on private land, according to a recent article in The Fence Post. A U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service spokesperson confirmed in an email to Outdoor Life that “this animal is a gray wolf from the Great Lakes population.”The USFWS was notified of the discovery by Colorado Parks and Wildlife after the ra...

On April 3 a rancher in Elbert County found an animal resembling a wolf in a coyote trap on private land, according to a recent article in The Fence Post. A U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service spokesperson confirmed in an email to Outdoor Life that “this animal is a gray wolf from the Great Lakes population.”

The USFWS was notified of the discovery by Colorado Parks and Wildlife after the rancher reported it to a CPW wildlife officer. That officer coordinated with the federal agency to collect tissue samples and send them to a lab for DNA analysis. The lab results revealed that the animal in question was a gray wolf from the Great Lakes population, which is genetically distinct from the gray wolf population of the Northern Rockies.

“This is not a wolf from the ten recently released by Colorado Parks and Wildlife in December 2023,” the USFWS spokesperson told Outdoor Life. He added that the federal agency was working with CPW to investigate the discovery, as gray wolves in the Great Lakes population — unlike wolves in the Northern Rockies — remain under federal protections as an ESA-listed species.

The wolf was an 84-pound male, and it was caught by a trapper in a legal leg-hold trap that had been set for coyotes, according to The Fence Post. Body grip devices, foothold traps, and cable device traps are prohibited in Colorado, but landowners who are eligible for a 30-day agricultural trapping exemption can still use these devices, according to state regulations. The USFWS has not released a cause of death or any other details as part of its open investigation.

Even more puzzling is how a wolf from the Great Lakes region ended up in Elbert County, which lies in eastern Colorado not far from the heavily populated Front Range. Elbert County butts up against El Paso County, where Colorado Springs is located. The county seat of Kiowa is less than 50 miles southeast of Denver and roughly 25 miles east of Interstate 25.

The Fence Post reports that the wolf did not have a GPS tracking collar or show any signs that a collar had been removed, and CPW’s wolf activity map does not show any of the state’s known wolves passing through the county in recent months. An unnamed neighboring rancher told The Fence Post he thought the wolf could have been someone’s pet, but there is currently no other evidence supporting this theory.

It is possible that the wolf made it all the way from the Great Lakes to Elbert County on its own. Gray wolves are known to roam, and in 2023, researchers tracked a collared wolf from Michigan’s Upper Peninsula that traveled more than 4,000 miles over an 18-month period.

Minnesota is home to the highest number of gray wolves in the region, with an estimated population of more than 2,500. A map from 2018 shows that the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has observed wolf packs as far south as Anoka County. That county is located not quite 900 miles as the crow flies from Elbert County, Colorado.

Wolf from Great Lakes population confirmed in Elbert County

A rancher in Elbert County, Colorado, contacted Colorado Parks and Wildlife after discovering a wolf-like animal in a legal coyote trap on April 3 on a ranch in eastern Colorado. U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service confirmed that this animal is a gray wolf from the Great Lakes wolf population. This is not a wolf from the 10 recently released by Colorado Parks and Wildlife in December 2023. As a federally listed species under the Endangered Species Act, the service is investigating this incident and is working in coordination with Colorado Parks a...

A rancher in Elbert County, Colorado, contacted Colorado Parks and Wildlife after discovering a wolf-like animal in a legal coyote trap on April 3 on a ranch in eastern Colorado. U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service confirmed that this animal is a gray wolf from the Great Lakes wolf population. This is not a wolf from the 10 recently released by Colorado Parks and Wildlife in December 2023. As a federally listed species under the Endangered Species Act, the service is investigating this incident and is working in coordination with Colorado Parks and Wildlife. As an open and active investigation, no additional details are available at this time.

The animal was an 84-pound male captured by a trapper using a legal leg-hold trap on a 30-day agricultural trapping exemption for nuisance wildlife, including coyotes. The trapper was unable to identify the species and contacted a CPW officer who responded to examine the animal and investigate the circumstances of the animal’s death.

CPW contacted the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to assist in identifying the species of the animal. Tissue samples were collected and sent to a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service lab for DNA analysis. A spokesman indicated genetic test results would be returned in four to six weeks but were confirmed to The Fence Post on April 18.

The National Wildlife Research Center lab was not aware of the animal and was not utilized for their laboratory services though they are located in Fort Collins, Colo.

According to CPW, no wolf activity has been observed in this area. No tracking collars worn by reintroduced or native wolves show a presence in Elbert County. The animal did not have a collar or show any signs that one had been removed.

A neighboring rancher said there is abundant food sources for predators with calving season in progress. He said stray dogs also pose a significant problem for ranchers in areas with increasing development, especially this time of year.

“It was probably someone’s pet at one time, he appeared to be pretty slick and fat for a wild wolf,” he said. “We don’t need any more wolves, we have enough problems with predators as it is.”

This wolf was discovered the same day that CPW confirmed the first wolf depredation of a calf in Grand County. Four days later on April 7, CPW confirmed a second wolf depredation of a calf in Jackson County. Another calf was attacked on April 13 and is receiving veterinary care. Four yearlings followed on April 16 and 17 in Grand County.

Elbert County volunteer Ric Morgan passes away

Ric Morgan, an Elbert attorney and dairy goat farmer with a long history of service to the Elbert County community, passed away over the weekend of Feb. 17-18, county officials announced.

“It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Ric Morgan,” said an announcement on the Elbert County government Facebook page. “Since 1998, Ric had served the citizens of our county as Elbert County Veterans Service Officer. He dedicated his life to serving our veterans with unwavering commitment and compassion. His legacy of selflessness and dedication will forever inspire us. The loss of this respectful and kind gentleman will be deeply mourned in our community. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family during this difficult time. Ric was a blessing to this county. He will be deeply missed but his impact will live on in the lives he touched.”

The Veterans Service Office also posted a remembrance of Morgan online, saying: “Elbert County salutes the tremendous service that Ric Morgan has provided our veterans for the past 26 years and we join our community in mourning his passing. Ric had a passion for serving veterans and we know his focus would be on ensuring high-quality and timely service continues. That now becomes our mission.”

Morgan’s volunteer service for veterans included assisting veterans and their families with benefits such as filing Veterans Affairs claims, coordinating with state and federal agencies, and assisting with appeals.

When Morgan was honored in 2015 for his work with area veterans, an Elbert County News story told more about his life:

Morgan graduated from Colorado State University with a degree in geology and physical science. Following graduation, he attended the U.S. Navy Officer Candidate School in Pensacola, Florida, where he received his commission as a naval officer. Morgan and his wife moved to Elbert County in 1991, which was home even as Morgan served overseas.

After serving in the Navy for 20 years, he retired in 1999 with the rank of commander. A few years after his retirement and at the urging of a local clergy member, Morgan earned his law degree at the University of Denver and began practicing law in Elbert County, providing a great deal of pro bono work.

Morgan also provided advice at the free Lawyers at the Library sessions that he coordinated (click here for a recent Elbert County News story on the legal clinics) and helped local agencies in various ways, such as by serving as a volunteer adviser to the Elbert County Water Advisory Committee, where he was instrumental in obtaining grants for a countywide water study, and by advising the Elbert Water and Sanitation District with water and sanitation infrastructure.

Morgan also supported the Elizabeth Veterans Memorial and assisted the American Legion in creating a veterans meeting facility. As a local historian, he studied and presented lectures on the 1864 and 1868 Indian Wars in Elbert County.

The Elbert County News will provide updated information when details of any memorial services are announced.
