Backers of an initiative to reintroduce gray wolves in Colorado say they have turned in more than 210,000 signatures to the Secretary of State’s Office.

If the signatures are approved, the Colorado Restore Gray Wolf Population Initiative would appear on the ballot in 2020. Colorado voters would then decide on the measure that would require the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Commission (CPW) to form a plan to restore gray wolf populations in the western part of the state.

The Rocky Mountain Wolf Action Fund, the group backing the initiative, made the announcement during a press conference Tuesday.
