The 2010 plan by the U.S. Forest Service called for cutting grazing space for the domestic animals in Payette National Forest.

The hunters said they thought they had killed only one sheep, which they hauled away to eat. They weren't aware that two others were also mortally wounded in the crossfire. More

The desert bighorn sheep is the comeback kid among Texas big game animals. In its fight to maintain a precarious foothold in its native mountain ranges in arid West Texas, the magnificent beast has taken some critical body blows over the past century. During the nation's westward expansion in the 1800s, the wild sheep were used for food by the pioneers and work crews who first crossed the purple-hued mountains west of the Pecos. Later, the introduction of domestic sheep into wild sheep habitat brought exposure to diseases that decimated the bighorn herd. More
