By a razor-thin margin, Colorado voters approve wolf reintroduction program

Coloradans have voted to reintroduce wolves, which were hunted and trapped to extinction in the 1940s, to the state by 2023.

The proposition squeaked by with 50.4% of the total votes as of Thursday night. This is the first time American voters have ever weighed in on reintroducing a wildlife species, as that decision is usually left up to a state’s team of wildlife biologists.
