black-tailed prairie dog in Colorado
In Colorado, El Paso County officials oppose the listing of the black-tailed prarie dog. From the Colorado Springs Gazette: "The commissioners, in written comments to the agency, said the prairie dog is widespread in El Paso County, with a total of 923,190 acres of potential habitat, and federal regulations would pose a hardship on property owners, who would have to go through regulatory steps to preserve habitat in construction projects."
