Colorado Parks and Wildlife’s controversial Predator Control Study is set to begin in May. The agency wants to kill a certain amount of mountain lion and bear in the Piceance Basin and in the Upper Arkansas area to see if this helps increase the mule deer population. Wild Earth Guardians, a New Mexico-based environmental group, filed suit in January and March to stop the so-called study. And, last week, the group filed a separate lawsuit against Wildlife Services, the Federal agency that often exterminates predators and other species across the country in the name of resolving wildlife damage to livestock and protecting human health and safety. KDNK’s Amy Hadden Marsh spoke with Bethany Cotton, Wildlife Program Director for Wild Earth Guardians, to find out why.
