The incident occurred Saturday evening when the woman tried to get the moose out of the street so a car could pass.  The victim believed she was being a good neighbor in trying to lead the young bull moose away from the street.  “Unfortunately, the victim felt too comfortable and got too close,” said Lyle Sidener, Area Wildlife Manager for Colorado Parks and Wildlife. “Moose look like big friendly critters but they are tolerant only to a point.” Wildlife officers have been busy in Summit County this year. In early March, a woman was cited in Breckenridge for harassing a moose that was in the downtown area. The moose had to be relocated a few days later when spring break visitors refused to leave it alone and it was becoming less tolerant.  Winter is a challenging time for most species in Colorado. Moose, elk, and deer commonly seek shelter from wind and snow by moving into the same valley areas where people have built their towns. With everyone trying to utilize small spaces in the winter months, conflicts become more likely.  People are reminded to give moose a wide berth. Shiras moose, the subspecies found in Colorado, can weigh between 800 and 1200 pounds as adults. Even young moose can be in the 600 pound range. Colorado Parks and Wildlife offers these tips for safety around moose: Watch for signs of aggression, such as laid back ears, raised hair on the neck, or licking of the snout. Avoid animals that are behaving belligerently. Keep pets away, especially dogs, as moose can be quite aggressive toward other animals. If a moose charges, run and put a large object - car, tree, rock - between you and the moose.  Additional tips for watching and recreating in areas with moose can be found on the CPW web site at https://cpw.state.co.us/watching-moose .  ### Insert photo captions for additional images.

Restrictions and closures continue to be subject to change. DENVER - As the State of Colorado continues taking measures to combat the spread of COVID-19, Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) will close all playgrounds, campgrounds, camping and camping facilities (including yurts and cabins) at Colorado’s state parks as well as camping at State Wildlife Areas effective Thursday, March 26 until further notice. This action has been taken based on The Stay-At-Home Order from Colorado Governor Jared Polis and the advice of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).  CPW will notify all campers currently on-site to vacate immediately and staff will be contacting reservation holders and provide the process for either refunds or changes for those affected campers.  As of today, non-campground outdoor areas of parks, including trails, boat ramps, marinas and shorelines remain open. However, CPW managers may close areas that do not allow for social distancing. This could include picnic areas, fishing piers and other more concentrated recreation areas and will be determined by location. CPW encourages people to take local and state stay-at-home orders seriously, and limit travel time wherever possible, even for approved recreation.  Park visitors are reminded to practice social distancing and maintain at least six feet between other visitors. Anyone demonstrating signs of illness, such as coughing, fever or shortness of breath should stay home. Restrooms also remain open, and visitors are advised to take soap for handwashing and alcohol-based hand sanitizers when water is not available.  Most importantly, CPW recommends that everyone follow precautionary guidance issued by the CDC, CDPHE, public local health agencies, and the Colorado Governor’s Office when recreating in the outdoors. Last week, CPW temporarily suspended classes and large events and has temporarily closed facilities such as visitor centers and area offices. CPW is monitoring the COVID-19 situation carefully and is committed to following the state’s updated policy on social gatherings to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Visit CPW on the web for the most up-to-date information on how CPW is supporting the state’s COVID-19 efforts, as well as our social media platforms : Facebook , Twitter and Instagram . When getting outside, Coloradans must practice social distancing to help prevent COVID-19 and limit community spread. Updated information about Colorado Parks and Wildlife’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic is available at cpw.state.co.us . In addition, all US Forest Service campgrounds, restrooms, trailheads, cabins and fire lookout rentals, picnic sites and trash facilities are closed to the public. Check with your local National Forest, Bureau of Land Management, National Park Service, or US Fish and Wildlife Service office for specific closures and allowed recreation activities.    ### Insert photo captions for additional images.

CPW utilizes three bodies of water in the state for its broodstock - Lake Pueblo along with Chatfield and Cherry Creek Reservoirs. Broodstock is a group of mature fish used for breeding purposes.  Each spring during the walleye spawning operations, CPW Aquatic Biologists, other staff and an army of volunteers set out to collect a goal of roughly 130 million walleye eggs to deliver to the hatcheries. Walleye have been stocked in Colorado’s waters since around 1949. Aquatic biologists only spent two days on the water at Lake Pueblo (March 16-17), less than one full day at Cherry Creek (March 16) and none at Chatfield when the decision was made to stop the spawning operation to comply with social distancing guidelines established by health officials.  In that short period, an estimated 5.3 million fertilized eggs were collected from Lake Pueblo that were delivered to the Pueblo Fish Hatchery. Cherry Creek produced 1.2 million eggs, which were delivered to the Wray Fish Hatchery. Last year, CPW stocked 66.5 million walleye and saugeye fry across Colorado and nearly one million walleye and saugeye fingerlings. Fry is the developmental stage of fish immediately after the larvae stage, at an age of less than a week from hatching. Fingerlings are young fish that have reached the size of about 1.2 inches in length. Even though the state will not be taking enough walleye eggs to cover our waters for this year, aquatic biologists want anglers to know that they still will be able to enjoy productive walleye fishing the years to come. “Our walleye populations in our recreation waters across the state are strong,” said CPW Aquatic Section Manager Matt Nicholl. “Stocking is just one tool that fish managers use. Missing a year-class stocked into these waters is not going to crash our walleye populations.” The game plan for the eggs collected in this year’s limited spawning operation is to put them back into the brood waters to help maintain the valuable resources that ultimately serve as the supply chain for walleye across the state. “We are going to focus on Lake Pueblo, Chatfield and Cherry Creek with the eggs that we did take,” Nicholl said. “We are going to stock 1.1 million fry in Lake Pueblo and then take everything else into fingerling production and those will then be stocked into Chatfield and Cherry Creek.” The normal walleye spawning operation takes place over the course of three to four weeks and requires a number of people to be working in close proximity to each other. In a little cramped boathouse, a dozen or so crew members sort the slippery, wiggling fish into holding tanks. Then the fish make their way down an assembly line where, one by one, the female walleyes are massaged and stripped of their roe, or eggs, and the males of their milt, or semen, which are then carefully mixed in plastic tubs with filtered lake water. The work goes on until the biologists reach their goal for fertilized eggs, the spawn ends, or the lake water temperatures rise resulting in too many other species being caught.

The overall number of positive animals in the county is consistent with previous years in March, however, Colorado Parks and Wildlife, the Larimer County Department of Health and Environment (LCDHE) and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) urge residents to stay away from stray and wild animals, check pets’ rabies vaccination status and take other precautions to avoid rabies. Rabies is regularly found in Colorado wildlife, especially skunks and bats. Interaction between humans and wild animals, particularly bats, skunks, foxes and raccoons, increases the risk of rabies exposure to pets and people, said Dr. Jennifer House, Colorado state public health veterinarian. “If you or your pets have had contact with wildlife, call LCDHE at 970-498-6775 for those in Larimer County or CDPHE at 303-692-2700  immediately," House said. She added that it is also crucial to make sure all dogs and cats are vaccinated. “The vaccine can prevent companion animals from getting rabies from wildlife and possibly exposing your whole family to the disease,” she said.  According to the CDPHE, eight animals have been found carrying rabies in the state so far this year (seven skunks and one mountain lion) including the three that have been found in Larimer County. The numbers represent only animals that were tested after they had encounters with people, pets or livestock. There are many more rabid animals in the Colorado outdoors that never get tested. Rabies is spread primarily through the bite of rabid animals. It is almost always fatal in humans once symptoms appear. People who have been bitten or scratched by an unfamiliar animal should contact their health care provider immediately to reduce the risk of rabies. How to stay safe: Vaccinate your pets. Use a licensed veterinarian, and make sure you keep up with pets’ booster shots. Leash your dog. Protect dogs and wildlife by keeping your pet on a leash while walking or hiking. Keep cats and other pets inside at night. Keep dogs within your sight (in a fenced yard or on leash) during the day while outside. Keep pet doors locked at night to keep pets inside and prevent wildlife from entering. Call your veterinarian promptly if you believe your pet has been exposed to a wild animal. Call your local public health agency if you have contact with a wild animal.  Vaccinate pastured animals annually. Have a licensed veterinarian administer an approved large-animal rabies vaccine.  Bat-proof your home. Information is available at www.cdc.gov/rabies/bats/management Use a veterinarian-approved flea and tick preventative on your cats and dogs. Fleas and ticks do not transmit rabies, but they do transmit diseases such as plague and Tularemia.   Never touch or feed wild or stray animals. Don’t leave pet food outdoors. You will also attract mice and other small rodents if you leave food out.   Important Phone Numbers/Points of Contact If you see a sick, orphaned, or dead wild animal, do not touch it, just leave it alone. You can report it to CPW by calling our Fort Collins office at 970-472-4300 or our Denver office at 303-291-7227. You can also report abnormally acting wildlife to Larimer Humane Society Animal Control at 970-226-3647, ext. 7. Contact Larimer Humane Society Animal Control at 970-226-3647 if you encounter a lost or stray dog or cat. If you or your pet has direct contact with wildlife, contact LCDHE at 970-498-6775, or your local health department if located outside of Larimer County.    Tips to recognize sick wildlife:  Many healthy wild animals are normally afraid of humans; sick animals often do not run away when spotted by people. Sick animals may approach people or their pets. Skunks and raccoons are mostly nocturnal and may be sick if they are seen being active during the daytime.  Some rabid animals are overly quiet and passive and want to hide. Don’t bother them. Rabid wildlife might have trouble walking, flying, eating or drinking. They may walk like they’re “drunk,” i.e. wobbly and off-balance.   Helpful Websites: CPW : https://cpw.state.co.us/learn/Pages/WildlifeHealthRabies.aspx LCHD : https://www.larimer.org/health/communicable-disease/animal-borne-diseases/rabies CDPHE : https://www.colorado.gov/pacific/cdphe/rabies Photo credits:  Top: Tony Gurzick/CPW Bottom Left: stock mountain lion photo taken in 2019 by Jeff Goetz Bottom Right: Courtesy of USFWS Share Tweet Share Forward CPW is an enterprise agency, relying primarily on license sales, state parks fees and registration fees to support its operations, including: 41 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.

Collecting feedback from stakeholders, the general public and staff is an essential part of the CPW planning process. To provide input on mountain lion populations, fill out our short online survey . All public feedback must be submitted during the 30-day open feedback period, which is live now and closes on April 12, 2020 at midnight MST.  Historically, mountain lions in Colorado have been managed on smaller, localized scales similar to deer and elk. However, current research shows that managing mountain lions on a landscape-level is more effective and appropriate. In this draft plan, CPW staff referenced numerous recent publications and advancements in the science of lion management since lion plans were last updated in 2004, to develop the draft framework to guide management objectives in support of maintaining relatively stable lion populations on the West Slope. During February , CPW staff held public meetings to present and discuss the new draft management plan framework with stakeholders interested in lion management. This initial public feedback process helped further refine aspects of the draft plan that will guide management on the West Slope beginning with the 2021-2022 mountain lion season.  Public feedback received during the 30-day open feedback period will be incorporated in the final West Slope Mountain Lion Management Plan draft presented to the Parks and Wildlife Commission (PWC). The two-step PWC approval process of the draft plan will also be an additional opportunity for public engagement and commenting. For more information, visit the CPW Lion Population Management Plan webpage . If you have questions, call the Western Slope CPW office nearest you. We encourage people to respect the health and safety of our staff and other customers and use online and phone-based services wherever possible.  Share Tweet Share Forward CPW is an enterprise agency, relying primarily on license sales, state parks fees and registration fees to support its operations, including: 41 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.

line-height:150% !important; } } FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE  Bridget Kochel Statewide Public Information Officer 720-219-2919 / bridget.kochel@state.co.us Colorado Parks and Wildlife promotes outdoor health benefits and trail safety etiquette during COVID-19 pandemic Research shows spending time in nature has physical and mental health benefits.  Photo: Sylvan Lake State Park  DENVER-- Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) is diligently working to keep state parks open so the public can enjoy the health benefits associated with being outside.  As Colorado adjusts to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is important to find or maintain healthy pastimes that strengthen your physical and mental health. A healthy mind and body can strengthen your immune system, and nature proves to be a valuable refuge for Coloradans.  “Our goal at Colorado Parks and Wildlife is to minimize the effects of COVID-19 on people's recreation experiences in Colorado, especially now when they need them the most,” said State Trails Program Manager Fletcher Jacobs.   Research shows spending time in nature has physical and mental health benefits.  The outdoors helps you get exercise.   Physical activity is one of the best things people can do to improve their health. Daily exercise decreases the risk of chronic diseases. Sunshine gives your body vitamins. Natural sunlight exposes your body to vitamin D , which is essential for a well-functioning immune system.  Being in nature reduces anxiety. The outbreak of COVID-19 is stressful for people. Fear and anxiety about illnesses can be overwhelming and cause strong emotions in adults and children. Walking outside improves your mental health and reduces stress.  The outdoors provides aromatherapy that boosts your immune system. Scientists studied that breathing in phytoncide , airborne chemicals produced by plants, increases our levels of white blood cells and helps fight off infections and diseases.   “Colorado Parks and Wildlife staff remain dedicated to our mission to provide a quality state park system and enjoyable outdoor recreation opportunities for our communities, even during this time of uncertainty,” said CPW Director Dan Prenzlow.   Based on guidance from government and public health officials, all Coloradans should take proactive steps to slow and mitigate the transmission of coronavirus to one another. This will help “flatten the curve” in an attempt to keep too many cases from happening at the same time and overwhelming our medical facilities. Park visitors are encouraged to enjoy parks responsibly during the COVID-19 outbreak. Please consider the following when visiting a Colorado state park and comply with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) social distancing guidelines . If you are sick, stay home. Follow CDC guidelines and avoid spreading the virus to others.   Keep a social distance from others. Coloradans have access to 41 state parks that offer a variety of outdoor activities. CPW recommends activities done alone or with people that live in your home, such as walking, hiking, biking and fishing. These activities can be enjoyed while keeping you at a distance from others. CDC recommends six feet of distance from others. Avoid high-risk or remote activities. Accidents stemming from high-risk types of activities may require extensive resources. Colorado Search and Rescue teams are prepared and ready to respond, but could become overloaded if the number of calls increases and the number of available responders decreases. Being responsible outdoors can also help prevent additional burdens on our first responders and healthcare workers. Announce your presence to others. Help maintain the recommended six feet of social distance. Signal your presence with your voice or a bell when passing others.  Stay regional. Front Range residents should avoid traveling to the high country or small mountain communities that are closed to visitors.  Avoid times and places of high use. To avoid creating large crowds and groups at popular trails or outdoor areas, spread out to less popular spots, and avoid times of highest use if possible. If an outdoor area is more crowded than anticipated, do not hesitate to adjust plans. Use COTREX to discover and explore other local trails in your area to help disperse traffic. Practice good hand hygiene. Wash your hands, use hand sanitizer and cover coughs with your elbow.      Be kind, say hi. The risk of COVID-19 is not at all connected with race, ethnicity, or nationality. Blaming others will not help fight the illness. Do your part to be kind, say hi or wave hello, respect your fellow humans when you are out on the trail in these challenging times. Share smiles!  CPW understands there is uncertainty surrounding how long the pandemic will impact our lives, and seek experiences that can still be shared while the current outbreak is underway. We are all in this together, and we can get through this together -  if we work together.  To learn about the most recent COVID-19 cases and updates, visit the CDC website or the CDPHE website .
