It’s calving season for local mountain ranchers. That includes at the Gittleson Ranch in Jackson County, where a pack of wolves have already killed three of their head of cattle. In the past two weeks, the wolves have killed at least two of the newborn calves and one is missing according to Kim Gittleson.
We have reached out to Colorado Parks and Wildlife for more details.
There are six wolves that were born to a pair of wolves living in Jackson County. The Gittlesons and other wolf experts expect the mom has had another litter of wolf pups last month there in Jackson County. They typically will emerge from the den for the first time around Mother’s Day.
