A howling wolf has a front paw caught in a leg trap. Currently, the legal status of these traps varies across the West, but they can be used by federal trappers working for the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Wildlife Services Department. This year in Colorado, Proposition 114, the Gray Wolf Reintroduction Initiative, asks voters to approve reintroducing wolves into the state.
James Shaw poses with a dead wolf killed near Thatcher in Las Animas County. This was one of the last wolves killed on Colorado’s eastern plains.
