Independent reporter Rico Moore has been taking an in-depth look at the Colorado Parks and Wildlife’s so-called Predator Control Study, which proposes to kill up to 40 mountain lion and bear this month in the Piceance Basin and more next year in the Upper Arkansas Basin. The agency blames predation for a drop in mule deer fawn survival rates, and is trapping and shooting targeted animals. Moore’s series, Off Target, is published in the Boulder Weekly. For this week’s News Brief, KDNK’s Amy Hadden Marsh talks to him about Part 5 and why there’s more to the problem than lions and bears.
