CPW officers took the osprey to a nearby rehabilitation facility where it is being treated for two air rifle pellet wounds. It was not able to fly due to its injuries; however, it is expected to survive. CPW officials warn the public to avoid killing any raptor. In Colorado, killing a bald eagle, golden eagle or peregrine falcon can bring penalties up to $100,000, the loss of hunting and fishing privileges and up to a year in prison. The fine for killing an osprey is $200 and ten points against hunting and fishing privileges in Colorado. Under federal law, penalties for killing any raptor can result in up to two years in prison and fines up to $500,000, depending on circumstances. Anyone with information can call CPW District Wildlife Manager Craig Wescoatt at 970-948-0354, or to remain anonymous, they can call Operation Game Thief at 877-265-6648.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Jennifer Churchill CPW NE Region PIO 303-291-7234 ============================================================ Update: Sterling meeting announced CPW invites the public to discuss wildlife budget issues at northeast meetings DENVER – Colorado Parks and Wildlife is facing a budget shortfall and is asking the public to attend one of five meetings in the northeast region to discuss these challenges. “Millions of people visit Colorado every year to see our beautiful wildlife and habitat, but it’s our sportsmen and sportswomen that bear the major cost of managing these natural resources,” said Mark Leslie, northeast regional manager. “We want to use these meetings to confer with these critical supporters and discuss our financial future, as well as the future needs for wildlife in Colorado.” Northeast Region Financial Sustainability meetings: DENVER: Wednesday, Aug. 10, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., Hunter Education Bldg., 6060 Broadway LONGMONT: Thursday, Aug. 18, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., Longmont Public Library, 409 Fourth Avenue STERLING: Monday, Aug. 22, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., Quality Inn, 2020 Leisure Lane FORT COLLINS: Tuesday, Aug. 30, 6 to 8 p.m., Marriott Hotel, 350 E Horsetooth Road EVERGREEN: Wednesday, Aug. 31, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., Evergreen Fire Rescue, 1802 Bergen Parkway CPW is managed as an “enterprise agency,” which means it does not receive any general sales tax dollars from Colorado taxpayers. The majority of the agency’s revenue comes from the sale of hunting and fishing licenses; it also receives grants from Great Outdoors Colorado and from federal excise taxes levied on the sale of hunting and fishing equipment. In the past six years, CPW has cut $40 million from its budget and eliminated 50 positions. Funds for the wildlife section and the Parks section are completely separate; there is no co-mingling of revenues or expenditures. At the meetings CPW staff will explain the financial issues facing the agency, and talk about the need to raise prices for resident hunting and fishing licenses. The last time CPW raised license prices was 2005. A license fee increase must be approved by the Colorado State Legislature. For reference, a license for a Colorado resident elk hunter costs $46, while a non-resident elk license cost $649. Non-resident hunting fees are adjusted every year according to the consumer price index. ### CPW is an enterprise agency, relying primarily on license sales, state parks fees and registration fees to support its operations, including: 42 state parks and more than 350 wildlife areas covering approximately 900,000 acres, management of fishing and hunting, wildlife watching, camping, motorized and non-motorized trails, boating and outdoor education. CPW's work contributes approximately $6 billion in total economic impact annually throughout Colorado. ** (https://www.facebook.com/ColoradoParksandWildlife ) ** Share (https://www.facebook.com/ColoradoParksandWildlife ) ** (http://www.twitter.com/COParksWildlife) ** Tweet (http://www.twitter.com/COParksWildlife) ** (mailto:http://us10.forward-to-friend.com/forward?u=5144ed31c5f2ba642e0393361&id=9987d41922&e=[UNIQID]) ** Forward (mailto:http://us10.forward-to-friend.com/forward?u=5144ed31c5f2ba642e0393361&id=9987d41922&e=[UNIQID]) ** (http://cpw.state.co.us) ** Website (http://cpw.state.co.us) Copyright © 2016 Colorado Parks and Wildlife, All rights reserved.

CPW seeks public input for Colorado Springs Urban Wildlife Management Plan
8/5/2016 12:45:33 PM
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Kyle Davidson CPW SE Region PIO 719-227-5211 ============================================================ CPW seeks public input for Colorado Springs Urban Wildlife Management Plan COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Deer, bears, coyotes and other wildlife are a fact of life in Colorado Springs. It's likely you'll see wildlife if you spend even a very short amount of time in and around our city. It's one of the perks of living here, but it's not without its challenges and costs. Over-abundant deer in parts of the city cause significant damage to landscaping. Motor vehicle collisions with deer result in property damage and injuries, and strain local law enforcement resources. Black bears frequent town looking for food, and when their search brings them into contact with people, it can be dangerous for both. These challenges can be taxing to Colorado Parks and Wildlife staff who must be creative with time and resources in order to better manage wildlife issues in an urban setting like Colorado Springs. "Right now the majority of our time is spent on dealing with urban wildlife conflicts, and we have very little time left for things like conservation, education, and law enforcement," said Area 14 Wildlife Manager Frank McGee. "Wildlife management in this city is a bigger issue than most people realize. We'd like input and direction from citizens on how they think wildlife in Colorado Springs should be managed" McGee said. CPW staff has been working with city officials and other stakeholders to develop management alternatives, and ask that members of the public attend any of the following public meetings to share their input. Public Meeting Dates: Aug. 8, 6 - 9 p.m., Fountain Library, 230 S. Main St., Fountain, Colo. Aug. 9, 6 - 9 p.m., Colorado Springs Fire Station 14, 1875 Dublin Blvd. Aug. 10, 6 - 9 p.m., Broadmoor Hall, Room C Adjacent to the International Center, 1 Lake Ave. Aug. 11, 6 - 9 p.m., CPW Southeast Region Office, 4255 Sinton Rd. For more information, contact the CPW Souteast Region Office at: (719) 227-5200. ### CPW is an enterprise agency, relying primarily on license sales, state parks fees and registration fees to support its operations, including: 42 state parks and more than 350 wildlife areas covering approximately 900,000 acres, management of fishing and hunting, wildlife watching, camping, motorized and non-motorized trails, boating and outdoor education.
