Just kidding - I really don't have a good answer for you.

Can someone tell me what I probably saw because I was under the impression that wolves are virtually non-existent in the state. Oh, and this may help, the animals I saw held their tale up as they moved. I originally thought they may have been mountain coyotes but I believe they move with their tale down and I've never heard of a white coyote.
I would think that it would be very easy for them Mexican Gray Wolves to make it to the San Juans. We had one get hit by a car a few years back in the Flagstaff area. I guess water probably limits their spread. Lack of it on the Colorado Plataea.steppendonk wrote:There's lots of coyotes in that area because of the sheepherding. I've seen many large coyotes thereabouts I would describe as white, and pretty chubby too. Biologists predict that Mexican wolves will make it up here eventually. That would be bad news for all the fat coyotes.
