Colorado's bears and lions need your help

Action: Wildlife Conservation

October 24, 2016   Action Alert ID# 441

 

Colorado Parks and Wildlife has proposed a plan to kill mountain lions and black bears in the Piceance Basin over a three-year period under the guise of recovering mule deer herds.

But the science is clear: Habitat loss and poor food quality are what's impacting deer recovery, not predation. The Piceance Basin in northwest Colorado has been hammered by oil and gas drilling for years, resulting in degraded habitat for wildlife. Because mule deer are limited by their food resources, this habitat loss is significant.

Despite this, agency officials have put together a "Predator Management Plan" to test a theory that removing carnivores from the landscape will magically boost deer numbers. Spoiler alert: It won't. This plan completely ignores science, which shows that killing native carnivores to increase deer populations is unlikely to work -- especially here, where habitat loss and inadequate nutrition have already been proven the limiting factors.

In mid-December the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Commission will meet to determine whether to approve the agency's plan and move forward with a kill order. Urge the commissioners to review the science, reject the plan and spare our wildlife.
