February 23rd, Update!
On Saturday, February 18th, staff members from Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) were able to recapture and refit the collar on wolf 2101 near North Park. As previously reported by WAN, wolf #2101 was fitted with a GPS collar earlier in the month along with wolf #2301.
As per a statement yesterday on the CPW website, wolf #2101’s collar came off soon after the early February attempt to secure him with a new one. This recollaring of wolf #2101 means two male gray wolves are again fitted with collars in Colorado.
The collaring effort was conducted in conjunction with elk and moose capture efforts for ongoing research studies in the area.
