DISCLAIMER:  ​​CPW will not provide specific location or specific animal information related to depredation incidents. The CORA exception covering species locations (24-72-204(2)(a)(X)) allows CPW to withhold information that "reveals the specific location or could be used to determine the specific location of . . . an individual animal or group of animals."

Livestock producers could be eligible for the fair market value of the livestock if a claim is submitted. CPW provides reimbursement for damages caused by gray wolves to livestock defined in C.R.S. 33-2-105.8 and animals used for guard/herding purposes and provides conflict minimization materials to livestock producers in affected areas under its Gray Wolf Compensation and Conflict Minimization Program.

CPW will continue to work closely with US Fish and Wildlife Service and the agricultural community to successfully implement the impact-based management framework laid out in Chapter 5 of the Colorado Wolf Restoration and Management Plan. Additionally, CPW and CDA have been working together through a Memorandum of Understanding and have been building the capacity to anticipate and prepare for predator livestock incidents, including deploying range riders and other tools to help ranchers with non-lethal deterrence.​
