Bighorn sheep die-off closes hunting area near Yellowstone
The Associated Press via Helena Independent Record (poll required)
A bighorn sheep die-off caused by disease has triggered the closure of hunting for the animals just outside Yellowstone National Park. Montana Wildlife officials said that at least 34 bighorn sheep have died in the pneumonia outbreak that began late last year near Gardiner, Montana. That's almost 40 percent of the herd that ranges in the Gardiner and Cinnabar areas north of Yellowstone.

    Boone and Crockett announces new bighorn sheep world record
    Aberdeen News
    What do black bears, grizzly bears, tule elk and nontypical whitetail deer all have in common? The world records for each animal, as recognized by the Boone and Crockett Club, were not taken by a hunter. Instead, the massive animals died of other causes and were found later and reported. Bighorn sheep have now been added to that list.

    Missoulian

From the inside of a helicopter, the Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks biologist explored 22 canyons from Trapper Peak to Carlton Ridge while searching for signs of mountain goats. Montana FWP biologists have taken to the air to see how mountain goat populations are faring in the Bitterroot numerous times over the years.
