california, the equipment is being shipped back to the 3rd infantry brigade combat. video in englewood near santa fe and dartmouth, you can expect more tanks through denver on the north to south trackathize next few days-- tracks the next few days, if this was an actual invasion, you would tune into next for the latest information. we know a bunch of you are leaf peepers, don't act like you are not, we have seen you looking, everyone does it. on the first f rocky mountain national park workers are scrambling to prepare the park for a herd of people, it will be the busiest day of the year at the park on saturday. 13,000 car fulls of humans expected to roll through the the park waves the entry fee to celebrate national public lands day, if you don't like the crowds, come on a week day. the crowds will be half the size. >> we laugh sometimes that the
like they come for that reason because it is fee free, other people are completely surprised when they get here, like what is going on? fee free day! and other people stay away because it is fee free day. >> the park is open 24 hours, so you can always go at some odd time to beat the crowds. of course there is no leaf peeping at night. don't be creeping and peeping, that is gross. if you are headed to rocky, get there no later than 9:30 or 10:00 if you want to park at the park, if not shuttle from estes park. sadly, again, we could not find a cat fashion show for steve staeger to cover, but an interesting issue impacting cat rescues and dog shelters, impacting all of us who care about shelter pets. what the heck is going on at the rocky mountain sea lion rescue? the group used to list itself as a no-kill shelter, then dropped the no-kill part last year without saying much about it.
same. >> reporter: president carrie can't say that enough, nothing changed. not like they started euthanizing at will, it is just the phrase "no kill." >> we formed a grant writing committee and a lot of grants we could not apply for because people are requiring the no-kill vernacular not be used. >> reporter: it makes it more difficult to work with bigger shelters like the denver dumb friendly. >> we are part of the animal welfare alliance not to use no-kill language. >> reporter: dr. april is the coo of ddfl. >> no-kill does not mean no-kill. people think because it is no kill, animals aren't euthanized, the standard is less than 10% of animalerize euthanized and the whole state does that. >> >> reporter: the problem is it is starting to spark a war of worlds in the animal welfare industry. >> progressive funders are
language. >> reporter: money doesn't come easily to smaler shelters that use the dirty word, no kill. the rocky mountain feline rescue made a change and carrie can't say it enough. >> we are not a kill shelter and honestly i think they are trying to get rid of kill shelter and no kill. i think it is misleading. >> reporter: an interesting lesson that goes hand in hand with another we learned today. it is tough to do interviews with cats hanging around. for next, i am steve staeger. >> rocky mountain feline says it will only euthanize cats if they are suffer ing or out of medical options. ddfl said it does has not euthanized a healthy animal in 4 years. sometimes a longer take on an important issue, like the one raised by a teacher who wondered if these days we are teaching intolerance. >> a concern, i wanted to reach
office in the denver metro area. as a teacher and member of the diverse community that makes up denver, i was angered and saddened to know that anyone in this amazing state could want to share such damaging thoughts. several of my students are muslim and to know that any one of them could come across this kind of hate is unbelievable to me. as a loyal watcher of 9 news, i know your station is always tackling the issues that impact our community. in this time, i can't think of than sharing this picture. i have been a teacher for 16 years now, i have come across students from all walks of life, ethnicity, culture, religion, socioeconomic background, and the one thing i can say is that every student out there, every person out there wants to do the best that they can and they want to have a safe place to do it. denver is a diverse community, i have a lot of students who are refugees and running from horrible situations and to know
to have brought them in and made them feel like this was home, made them feel like it is a safe place, could then turn into a country where they might start to feel like they need the run or they can't feel safe, is just heart breaking to me. i am educating kids on how to be good people and remind myself that i don't ever, ever want my kids to come across something like that or to feel that unsafe in their classroom, in their school, which is supposed to be the safe place for them. buffalo bill cod h gone a century but his legacy lived on in one man. >> lot of people say born a hundred years too late. >> the world's most famous ballerina interviewed by next's newest reporter. >> come on, lets go. we single out one of the many coloradans who keeps this
