Wolf Pack in Western Colorado?

The Denver Post reports a possible wolf pack establishing itself in western Colorado.

At least two wolves from the Yellowstone National Park area have wandered hundreds of miles into Colorado since 2004. One of the wolves was found dead along Interstate 70 west of Denver. The other, which was radio-collared, died in northwest Colorado last year; federal officials are investigating.

Actually, I heard my first wolf-gossip from the San Juans back around 1986. Never sure whether to believe that or not.

There's also an interesting feature along these lines in High country News.
