In the northwest of Colorado—Colorado Parks and Wildlife captured two male wolves and placed GPS collars on them. The two males were tranquilized to safely enable a health check performed by the experts. Both the wolves seem to be in good condition. The purpose of this is to ensure the animals are heathly to further countinue their research. The first male of the two examined was captured before—and his old collar was damaged—so he had it replaced. The second male is one of the six pups that a male (2101) and female (1084) produced. Observing wolves is a common thing for researchers and experts to perform to study the animal’s behavior. There are other methods that experts use to study wolves aside from tranquilizing them—observing wolf feces and tracks.
