Arizona Desert Museum joins bighorn sustainable breeding program
Arizona Public Media
The Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum is part of a multi-state, binational breeding program involving bighorn sheep. One of the program's goals is to raise the number of captive-bred sheep kept in different facilities, and to increase their genetic diversity by moving them between the other participating entities. "Six like-minded institutions got together and decided that it was about time that we started looking at sustainable breeding of bighorn sheep ... over a year and a half ago Utah's Hogle Zoo, (Los Angeles Zoo), the Living Desert ... San Diego and Phoenix and ourselves all got together and came up with a plan," said Shawnee Riplog-Peterson, curator of mammalogy and ornithology at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum.

Shoshone National Forest considers permanent pack goat ban
Casper Star-Tribune
Clay Zimmerman is spending his retirement renting pack goats to backpackers. Goats are gentle creatures that want to please, making them easy to rent to even those unfamiliar with the beasts, he said. The Evanston man has been using pack goats for about 20 years, since his wife's knees became so bad she couldn't carry any weight on her back. "Goats are not a pack animal; goats are your hiking companions," Zimmerman said. "They're there to assist you and make your trip easier and more enjoyable. It makes it so a lot of people can get into the wilderness who normally could not go because of physical limitations like a bad back or bad knees."
