The Colorado Wildlife commission held its regular March meeting in Denver on Thursday, March 13. The meeting began at 8:30 a.m. and ran through 4:15 p.m.
A citizen petition was introduced for banning the shooting of prairie dogs.
Colorado cattle growers and sheep grower’s assoc were present to argue against the petition.
Commissioners will hear more debate at next meeting on May 1-2 - Meeting in Grand Junction. Your presence will be helpful.
The Commission will make a decision at the July10-11 Meeting in Durango.
Most of the commission members are not hunters, so this will seem like a valid cause to them.
If we don’t standup for our sport no one else will. There is also a good possibility that the neighboring states will soon follow suit.
Attendance at the meting will be helpful or if unable. Letters or calls to the Commission will help.
