In early March, a wildfire in northeast Colorado burned more than 30,000 acres near Haxtun, destroying several homes, thousands of acres of agricultural fields and an untold number of outbuildings.

Last week, Colorado Parks & Wildlife donated approximately 66 bales of hay to help a landowner who was affected by the fire. Wildlife managers transported the hay from Tarryall Reservoir and Cline Ranch state wildlife areas in South Park. The hay will help the rancher feed his livestock until grazing lands recover.

Area Wildlife Manager Todd Schmidt talks about the fire and the hay donation in the video below:
