Cordillera is home to abundant wildlife, which is just one of many reasons people love to live here. However, caution always needs to be at the forefront when encountering wildlife. Just some of the wildlife you may be lucky to see in Cordillera include black bears, coyotes, moose, fox, mountain lion, deer and elk. Feeding wildlife can result in their death. Preventing problems with wildlife is a community effort. Keep wildlife wild!
Public Safety, in concert with Colorado Parks and Wildlife, monitors the wildlife that share the mountains with residents. To report injured or problem wildlife, contact Colorado Parks and Wildlife.
