Colorado Parks and Wildlife will be voting on the West Slope Mountain Lion Plan at the upcoming Commission meeting on September 2-3. Thank you to those that already submitted written comments. Now we need YOUR help to ensure that our voices are heard! It is imperative that you provide verbal comments to the commission and speak out against this potentially ruinous plan!
To provide verbal testimony at the meeting on September 2-3, you must sign up by August 28, 2020 at 12:00 PM Mountain time.
Comments will be limited to two minutes. Ask the CPW commission to:
- Not permit electronic calls: These are not fair chase and have been opposed by the commission in votes in 2011 and 2016.
- Not approve exemptions for the Glenwood Special Management Area (GMU’s 43, 44, 45, 444) and hold this area to the same management practices as other units throughout the state.
- No new concurrent rifle hunting season when mountain lions are still raising their young: This is not ethical and causes unnecessary additional and uncounted mortality.
- Reject the proposed changes put forth by Colorado Parks and Wildlife in the Draft Colorado West Slope Mountain Lion (Puma concolor) Management Plan – Northwest and Southwest Regions.
