The building boom along Colorado’s Front Range has forced wildlife to flee or to adapt to urban living. Animals that adapt often find themselves face-to-face with humans who don’t want to share the habitat. To assist in resolving these conflicts between humans and animals, Cooperative Extension volunteers have received special training in resolving wildlife conflicts from Colorado State University.
