The Colorado Parks and Wildlife Commission says it opposes any possible move by the federal government to introduce endangered Mexican gray wolves to the state, arguing they aren't native to Colorado and would threaten livestock and big game animals.

Commissioners approved a resolution Wednesday saying they're against a formal effort to establish a wolf population but said they wouldn't object if wolves migrated to Colorado on their own.
