Rescue teams recover drowning victim at Chatfield State Park
8/5/2020 1:09:41 PM
Body: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE  Connor Christian, Public Information Officer for South Metro Fire Rescue - 720-656-5242 Jason Clay, Public Information Officer for CPW’s Northeast Region - 303-291-7234 Rescue teams recover drowning victim at Chatfield State Park Photo is from Friday, Aug. 31 as rescue crews began the search for the missing person in the reservoir LITTLETON, Colo. - Wednesday morning rescue crews recovered the body of an 18-year-old male victim that drowned Friday, July 31, while swimming at Chatfield State Park. The victim was located at 8:19 a.m. by sonar and then confirmed by optical video equipment on the ROV (remote-operated vehicle) from a Colorado Parks and Wildlife Marine Evidence Recovery Team vessel. Dive teams from South Metro Fire Rescue and the Denver Fire Department assisted with the recovery of the body from the water and turned the investigation over to the Jefferson County coroner's office.  The body was discovered roughly 50 yards off the shoreline in 17 feet of water. Rescue crews involved in the search included Colorado Parks and Wildlife Park Rangers, CPW’s Marine Evidence Recovery Team as well as dive teams and emergency personnel from both South Metro and West Metro Fire Rescue, Arapahoe Rescue Patrol, Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, Denver Fire and Summit County Sheriff’s Office. “We offer our deepest condolences to the family,” said Kris Wahlers, Chatfield State Park Manager. “We are thankful to all the rescue crews who aided in this extensive search and we hope that the recovery of the body will bring a little comfort to the family as they mourn the loss of their loved one.” The Jefferson County coroner will determine a cause of death and make identification of the victim. The family of the victim was at the state park when the body was removed from the water and has been notified. "South Metro Fire Rescue's Dive Team utilized a number of resources during the water recovery operation,” said Connor Christian, Public Information Officer with SMFR. “Station 31's Dive Boat is equipped with sonar and electronic searching capabilities for crews to track the areas they have searched using GPS coordinates, to locate targets in the reservoir, and to send divers underwater to get a closer look at the objects recorded on sonar. Weather conditions and water visibility have made this technology extremely useful for South Metro's dive team during this multi-day operation. The SMFR UAV Team and West Metro Fire Rescue used drones over the water recovery to do grid searches, scan the shoreline and to search the shallow water to look for objects out of place creating targets for the divers to focus on. South Metro is appreciative of the coordination and support during the recovery between multiple agencies.” The victim went underwater around 3:25 p.m. Friday in the Catfish Flats area that is located south of the swim beach on the west side of the state park. The victim was one of two individuals seen struggling swimming in the water - a nearby boat had rescued one of the swimmers, but was unable to recover the other. The victim was reported to be last seen roughly 60 yards offshore in an area between 18-20 feet of water.  “What was making the area so difficult to search is we go from one-foot, one-and-a-half feet of water, to four to five feet and then it drops off to 18 feet and then it comes up rapidly to one-and-a-half feet,” said Jim Hawkins, CPW’s team leader of the Marine Evidence Recovery Team. “So it is very difficult for us to run our sonar and we are also running into five to six foot tall milfoil… Visibility was pretty poor, between two to three feet.” CPW’s Marine Evidence Recovery Team utilized underwater ROV’s (remote-operated vehicles), which uses sonar, lights, video camera and a manipulator in searches.  The drowning was the 23rd in the state this year (20 lake-related, three swift water), as we approach the deadliest year on Colorado’s waters in history. The highest number of drownings in a year is 24, recorded in 2019. “It’s racking up to be a tough year for water fatalities,” said Grant Brown, CPW’s Boating Safety Program Manager. “We’ve seen a lot of people swimming from shore, smaller craft paddling and the biggest thing we are seeing is no life jackets. Either one on board not wearing it or just don’t have one and that is one of the things we are really trying to push is have a life jacket with you and make sure you are wearing it.” 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. CPW's work contributes approximately $6 billion in total economic impact annually throughout Colorado.       Copyright © 2020 Colorado Parks and Wildlife, All rights reserved.

3 Meeker Residents Guilty In Moffat County Trophy Elk Poaching
8/3/2020 2:34:42 PM
Body: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE  Randy Hampton Northwest Region Public Information Officer 970-640-1647 / randy.hampton@state.co.us 3 MEEKER RESIDENTS PLEAD GUILTY IN MOFFAT COUNTY ELK POACHING CASE Two trophy elk racks forfeited at sentencing in Moffat County poaching case CRAIG, Colo. - Three Meeker residents have been sentenced for the poaching of two trophy bull elk last fall. The case began on Sept. 25, 2019, when a witness in the Sand Wash Basin area reported a wounded bull elk and a suspicious truck to Colorado Parks and Wildlife Officer Jeff Goncalves. Goncalves responded and found evidence that eventually led to a truck owned by 18-year-old Henry Musser of Meeker. Questioning of Henry Musser and further evidence gathered from his vehicle and home led officers to the involvement of his father, John Allen Musser, also of Meeker, as well as a juvenile offender. Information was gathered about a second bull elk that was poached by the three suspects. Officers also determined that John Musser had taken efforts to hide evidence in the case. Citations related to the case were issued on March 19, 2020 and all three individuals entered guilty pleas last week in Moffat County courtrooms.  The poaching incident on Sept. 25, 2019 occurred in an area along Moffat County Road 67 in Sand Wash Basin. The area is part of Game Management Unit (GMU) 2, which is a highly valued trophy unit where hunters may wait more than 20 years to draw a license. The second elk was poached a few days prior to Sept. 25th. Both elk that were killed are large trophy elk, meaning fines in the case were enhanced under the state’s “Samson law.” The “Samson law” is named for a popular and quite visible, 1,000 pound bull elk that was killed illegally in Estes Park in 1995, leading to public desire for higher penalties in egregious poaching cases.  “The Sand Wash case shows the importance of witnesses in helping be the eyes of wildlife across the vast and remote parts of the state,” Goncalves said. “We can’t be everywhere but there are many people recreating and traveling the back roads who can report to us anything they see that is suspicious.”  People who witness a wildlife crime or hear about them after the fact are integral in solving many cases. The Operation Game Thief (OGT) hotline allows for anonymous information and cash rewards. A program called TIPS, or Turn In Poachers , is also available and can provide opportunities to hunt trophy units for people who provide information that leads to a conviction in trophy poaching cases. In court in Craig, on July 27, Henry Musser, 18, pleaded guilty to hunting without a license, illegal possession of wildlife, and aggravated illegal possession of wildlife. He was ordered by the court to 18 months of supervised probation, 48 hours of community service, and $15,341.50 in fines and court costs.  John Allen Musser, 44, pleaded guilty and received a deferred felony sentence for tampering with evidence. In addition, John Musser pleaded guilty to hunting without a license, illegal possession of wildlife, and aggravated illegal possession of wildlife. John was ordered by the court to perform 48 hours of community service and pay $15,483.50 in fines and court costs.  The juvenile in the case entered a plea of guilty to hunting without a license, hunting with an illegal method of take and hunting big game without an adult present. The juvenile will serve unsupervised probation, must perform 48 hours of community service, and pay fines and court costs of $1,962.50. In addition, all three were ordered to forfeit hunting equipment. They will also face a separate administrative hearing process where they will be subject to the loss of hunting and fishing privileges in Colorado and 48 other states.  Colorado Parks and Wildlife officers and investigators deal with an average of 4,000 wildlife violations each year ranging from fishing without a license to large wildlife poaching cases. “Coloradans value their wildlife and we’re proud of the law enforcement officers at CPW who work hard to conserve those populations for everyone’s benefit,” explained Bill deVergie, Area Wildlife Manager for the northwest corner of the state. “Cases like these come down to citizens watching and reporting when they see or hear something. We thank the citizens who knew what to do when they noticed the poaching activity in this case.” ###  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.

CPW Officers confiscate wild fox from Colorado Springs woman; remind public it is illegal and potentially dangerous to possess wild animals
8/1/2020 6:19:41 PM
Body: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE  Bill Vogrin Southeast Region Public Information Officer 719-466-3927 / bill.vogrin@state.co.us PRESS RELEASE TITLE HERE File photo of a Red fox / Courtesy Colorado Parks and Widlife Aug. 1, 2020 CPW Officers confiscate wild fox from Colorado Springs resident COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Colorado Parks and Wildlife officers confiscated a wild Red fox from a woman in Colorado Springs on Friday. Wildlife officers discovered the woman had the fox after she created an Instagram page for the animal where she posted dozens of photos and videos dating to May 4, 2018, when the animal was a small kit. It is a crime to possess wild animals in Colorado. Illegal possession of live wildlife is a misdemeanor punished by a $100 fine. And it’s potentially dangerous. Red fox are known to carry diseases such as canine distemper and rabies. In her initial Instagram post, the woman claimed she had “rescued” the fox. Photos and videos show it in a dog collar, on a leash, eating human snacks and inside a chainlink fenced cage. But Frank McGee, CPW’s Area Wildlife Manager for the Pikes Peak region, described the act of taking an animal from the wild and raising it in a human home as “kidnapping.” “Wild animals belong in the wild. Period,” McGee said. “People cannot take care of wildlife better than their parents. It is selfish and irresponsible to take these animals from the wild.” McGee said there’s a reason CPW requires rehabilitation facilities to be certified and their operators trained and licensed. “It takes specialized education and training to handle wild animals, whether it’s deer, raccoons, birds or whatever,” McGee said. “People often think they are helping when they pick up wildlife. “They are not. These are wild animals. They are not meant to live in captivity.”  Because the fox had lived more than two years in captivity, wildlife officers determined it could not survive if released back into the wild forcing them to euthanize the animal. “This was so unnecessary and sad for the fox and our officers,” McGee said. “If you see a wild animal, especially a baby animal, leave it alone. Call us if you believe it’s orphaned or abandoned and needs to be rescued. We’ll assess the situation and get it to a licensed rehab facility, if necessary.” 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.

Body: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE  Travis Duncan Statewide Public Information Officer 720-595-8294 / travis.duncan @state.co.us Hunters have a chance to grab a big game license on annual Leftover Day at Colorado Parks and Wildlife DENVER - Leftover Day is almost here! Hunters mark their calendars for the first Tuesday in August each year to take a shot at any big game hunting licenses remaining after the primary and secondary draws. These remaining licenses are placed on the leftover list, now available on the Colorado Parks and Wildlife website , and become available for purchase on August 4 at 9 a.m., Mountain Time. Many of the licenses that would have been available in previous years were issued this year through the new secondary draw - which gave all interested hunters a chance to skip the wait on Leftover Day to get their license. CPW highly suggests hunters purchase their leftover licenses online this year. If you must go into a CPW office or a sales agent location to purchase a license, remember to bring a mask, respect public health orders and all staff requests. Additionally, hunters who are used to going into a CPW office location should be aware that the licenses now go on sale online, in our offices and at our sales agents all at once. If you’re on a computer or mobile device at home, you have the same shot as someone standing in a CPW office. And during this year’s pandemic, it’s an even better idea to purchase these licenses from the comfort of your own home. Just head to cpwshop.com and get logged in to your account a little before 9 a.m. on August 4 so you’re ready to purchase when the licenses go on sale. You can also call 1-800-244-5613, but know that there may be long wait times. Over-the-counter unlimited licenses will be available for purchase starting Aug. 6 at 9 a.m. Mountain Time.  More information on the leftover list and over-the-counter licenses is available on the CPW website .  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.
