The Ignacio Community Library will host “The Past and Future of Wolves in Colorado” talk from 5:30 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, at the library, 470 Goddard Ave.
The University Press of Colorado recently published “The Last Stand of the Pack, Critical Edition,” which is a reprint of a 1929 book that describes the trapping, shooting and killing of the last wolves in Colorado.
Dr. Andrew Gulliford, professor of history and environmental studies at Fort Lewis College, was a co-editor on the book and will discuss the history of wolves in Colorado, and in particular why they were killed in the 1920s.
This talk is meant to be both objective and informative for people wanting to learn more about wolves in Colorado, rather than serve as a debate about the possibility of their re-introduction.
