The only two wolves currently known to be in Colorado start to wake up after being tranquilized and collared by Colorado Parks and Wildlife on February 2, 2023.

The Associated Press reported this morning that a federal judge ruled against a request for a restraining order and injunction to stop the release of gray wolves into the state. But, an attorney for the Center for Biological Diversity says this is not true. KDNK’s Amy Hadden Marsh has this report on some legal wrinkles in the wolf reintroduction saga.

UPDATE DEC. 18, 2023:
Late Friday, December 15, federal judge Regina Rodriguez ruled against the ranchers' request for an injunction and temporary restraining order against the release of wolves, and to stay the renewal of a cooperative agreement between the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Colorado Parks and Wildlife until litigation filed on December 11 is resolved.

Amy Hadden Marsh’s reporting goes back to 1990 and includes magazine, radio, newspaper and online work. She has previously served as reporter and news director for KDNK Community Radio, earning Edward R. Murrow and Colorado Broadcasters Association awards for her work. She also writes for Aspen Journalism and received a Society of Professional Journalists’ Top of the Rockies award in 2023 for a story on the Uinta Basin Railway. Her photography has also won awards. She holds a Masters in Investigative Journalism from Regis University.
