North Idaho officials eye Clearwater River basin elk
KBOI-TV
What's ailing elk in the upper Clearwater River basin isn't a mystery. The habitat that was once ideal for elk has aged and led to a dramatic drop in numbers. Predators like gray wolves and, to a lesser extent, black bears and mountain lions, are holding them down. Fix those two things — reduce predator populations and convert the habitat to include more young forests and brush fields — and elk are likely to rebound.

Scientists study die-offs among bighorn sheep
Tri-City Herald
The female bighorn sheep looked like two sacks of potatoes as the helicopter lowered them to the ground. Blindfolded and hobbled, they stayed motionless while a crew of wildlife biologists, game wardens and a veterinarian ran to them to begin testing. Five sets of hands worked on the first ewe. Someone took her temperature: 101.7. A game warden held her down. Within minutes, the group carried her to the bottom of a rocky hill and let her go.
