Accounting error will drain funds from Division of Wildlife

ALAMOSA, Colo. (AP) - The Colorado Parks and Wildlife Commission is trying to figure out how to deal with an accounting error by the Division of Wildlife that will continue to drain resources for several more years.

The balance in the Wildlife Cash Fund, which pays for most game-management activities, will drop from $16 million to $5 million by 2014.

According to the Durango Herald, commissioners were told Thursday that it was an accounting error. Commissioners were told money was not misspent, and nothing is missing.

State officials have asked for an audit of the agency after officials revealed they failed to subtract spending on land and water acquisitions and other expenses from 2006 to 2007 and 2009 to 2010.
