Federal judge upholds Payette bighorn sheep protections
Idaho Statesman
A federal judge upheld the decision by the Payette National Forest to close 70 percent of the forest to domestic sheep grazing to protect wild bighorn sheep. U.S. 9th Circuit Judge Wallace Tashima denied a motion by the Idaho Wool Growers Association to overturn the 2010 decision by Payette National Forest Supervisor Suzanne Rainville aimed at separating domestic and bighorn sheep. Tashima ruled the Forest Service had followed the preponderance of evidence that domestic sheep carry diseases to the wild sheep populations.

Penning project aims to improve survival rates of mountain caribou
Calgary Herald
Twelve caribou cows have been captured in British Columbia's southern mountains near Revelstoke as part of an effort to improve survival rates in the vanishing herd. A team of 21 experts caught the caribou — including nine pregnant females — and put them in a 6.4-hectare holding pen about an hour north of Revelstoke. They are being fed and monitored until July, allowing any calves to be born away from natural predators in the area. Both the cows and calves, which will be fitted with GPS collars, will then be released in early July.
