Axtell Burros Have New Job: Protecting Cattle from Wolves

Two jacks and four jennies were taken from the off-range corrals in Utah to a ranch near Walden, CO, according to a story posted yesterday by KDVR News of Denver, courtesy of Colorado Parks and Wildlife.

The agency is required to restore and manage gray wolves in the state by the end of 2023, following the passing of Proposition 114, and wolf kills are already increasing.

The ranch covers 11,000 acres but Western Horse Watchers was unable to determine if it secures grazing preference on public lands.
