Mountain goats in South Dakota benefit from new bloodlines
The Sacramento Bee
While some people may be surprised to learn that mountain goats are not native to the Black Hills, state wildlife officials hope a rejuvenated population of transplants and zoo escapees will continue to grow and thrive. "We want people to be able to hike up and see them and for people to see them at Mount Rushmore. That's important to a lot of people," said John Kanta, regional wildlife manager for the South Dakota Department of Game, Fish and Parks.

Coachella Valley: Bighorn population stable
The Press-Republic
For the diminished population of the Peninsular bighorn sheep living in the mountains high above the Coachella Valley in California, biologists are used to good news coming with a few caveats. The endangered species is in the middle of lambing season, and the Palm Desert-based Bighorn Institute says so far it is going well. Biologists report spotting nine lambs born in recent weeks in the San Jacinto Mountains herd above Palm Springs and another nine in the northern Santa Rosa Mountains herd, near Rancho Mirage. Eight more were born in the central Santa Rosa Mountains near La Quinta.

Great falls Tribune
Sixty-one bighorn sheep were captured on Wild Horse Island State Park in Wyoming, Feb. 26-27 as part of an effort to keep their population in line with the available habitat.

Bighorns are guests of honor at new event in Basalt
The Aspen Times
Basalt has hosted festivals celebrating its rivers and its railroad heritage, but nothing proved to have staying power. Longtime Roaring Fork Valley, Colo., photographer Ken Toy thinks he has the next big idea for the small town. He wants to build a festival where some of the most popular, if somewhat shy, residents are the main attraction. Toy is launching the Bighorn Sheep Festival, which he plans to hold on an annual basis.

Researchers: Yellowstone grizzlies not in decline
Lexington Herald-Leader
A government-sponsored research team has concluded there are no signs of decline among Yellowstone's grizzly bears as officials consider lifting the animals' federal protections — despite warnings from outside scientists that such a move would be premature. Members of the Interagency Grizzly Bear Study team say in a new study that data collected on the threatened bruins over the past several decades contradict claims that the animals could be in serious trouble.

Local herd included in study of bighorns across West
Powell Tribune
The dart swatted the bighorn sheep ewe square on the rump, making her a winner of sorts. Little did the ewe know she had been picked to be included in a multistate study between Wyoming, Colorado and Montana. The Wyoming Game & Fish Department and others are endeavoring to ascertain why bighorn sheep in the Cody region are doing well despite pathogens that can cause disease. They plan to use that knowledge to understand why other bighorns around the West packing the same pathogens are not faring quite as well.
