“Colorado is now home to our first wolf litter since the 1940s,” said Gov. Jared Polis.

Colorado has reported its first gray wolf pups in 80 years, state wildlife officials announced on Wednesday.

A litter of at least three wolf pups along with their parents were spotted last weekend by both a state biologist and a district wildlife manager. Wolf litters tend to contain between four to six pups, so it remains possible there could be more.

“Colorado is now home to our first wolf litter since the 1940s. We welcome this historic den and the new wolf family to Colorado,” said Gov. Jared Polis (D).

Last year, Colorado voters approved a measure requiring the state to reintroduce gray wolves to public lands by the end of 2023.
