Wolves in the Backyard

The wolves in our area are getting bold! Kind of scary.

This cool footage was filmed by Plum TV in a neighborhood just south of town. A black wolf takes a little break from eating a dead elk to jump a fence into someone's backyard and tangle with some local dogs (don't worry - no one gets hurt).

On March 6, Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar affirmed the decision by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to remove the gray wolf from the endangered species list in all states with the exception of Wyoming. It is estimated that there are 1,600 wolves in the U.S. Rockies.
