Title

Nuisance wildlife laws in Colorado

Description

Following are summaries of Colorado’s most common regulations and statutes pertaining to nuisance wildlife questions. The laws and regulations in this handout are paraphrased for easier understanding and are intended only as a guide. Colorado’s wildlife statutes and regulations can be viewed in their entirety at Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) offices or online at http://cpw.state.co.us/aboutus/Pages/Regulations.aspx. Please keep in mind that these laws note what is restricted by state statutes and permitted by CPW regulations; however, local laws and ordinances may be more specific about what is allowed at a certain location. It is your responsibility to determine whether it is legal to use a particular method of take in your city or county. CPW does not require nor request the removal of wildlife deemed a nuisance; the determination that a species has become a nuisance and should be removed is the prerogative of the landowner. There are many non-lethal methods for discouraging the presence of wildlife. For information about co-existing with wildlife, please contact your local CPW office or visit our website at cpw.state.co.us.
