Wolves Removed from Colorado Sanctuary
Volunteers at a wolf sanctuary near a large wildfire burning in northern Colorado have removed 11 of the animals and hope the remaining 19 will take shelter in a series of underground concrete bunkers if the blaze passes through. WOLF sanctuary spokeswoman Michelle Proulx says the wolves were taken to kennels in Larimer County, and depending on the conditions Sunday, volunteers could go back and retrieve the remaining animals. If not, she says the wolves could take shelter at the sanctuary in what are known as "fire dens." The fire is burning in a mountainous area about 15 miles west of Fort Collins and grew to 22 square miles within about a day of being reported. It has destroyed or damaged at least 18 structures.
