Bighorn sheep workshops return
Mohave Valley Daily News
The Black Mountains north of Kingman, Arizona, provide an unforgiving environment with extreme summer temperatures, steep rock faces, and little forage. This setting, however, serves as home to the majestic desert bighorn sheep and provides a unique wildlife viewing opportunity for the public. The Arizona Game and Fish Department’s Region 3 office in Kingman will host two two-day Desert Bighorn Sheep Workshops July 25-26 and Aug. 1-2.

Rock Creek bighorns may hold key to sheep pneumonia problem
KPAX-TV
Researchers at Washington State University are hoping a handful of pregnant bighorn sheep from Rock Creek east of Missoula, Montana, may hold the key to solving disease that threatens to wipe out the iconic animals if it's not stopped. It's not only the sheep, but their soon-to-be-born lambs that are valuable to the latest research into sheep pneumonia. Some of the best experts in the region are working on the problem at WSU, and they recently received a valuable gift when Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks and the Wild Sheep Foundation teamed up to move eight expectant ewes from Rock Creek Canyon to Pullman for study.

Diverse wildlife a huge draw to visitors near Cody
Sioux City Journal
Hundreds of thousands of visitors come each year to Cody, Wyoming, equipped with cameras and binoculars, hoping to see an elk, moose, pronghorn antelope, bighorn sheep, mountain goat, whitetail deer or mule deer. Kevin Hurley remembers seeing them all. In a single day. "It was in April of 1986, and one of those watershed moments I'll always remember," said Hurley, conservation director for the Wild Sheep Foundation in Cody, where there are more bighorn sheep than anywhere else in the state.

Nevada's Desert bighorn embodies desert living
Las Vegas Review-Journal
If there's a more perfect state animal for Nevada than the Desert bighorn, we'd like to see it. The sheep populate the Silver State's countryside, making a hardscrabble living in one of the nation’s most inhospitable climates. "The bighorn is representative of everything about Nevada," said Doug Nielsen, a spokesman for the Nevada Division of Wildlife. "It's rugged. It lives in a rugged landscape. It makes its life in a harsh environment. It has had its ups and downs like the human residents of Nevada, but it continues to fight and hang in there."

Canyon's bighorn sheep fighting for survival
Yakima Herald
Against the Yakima River Canyon's backdrop of rock promontories and steep scree slopes, two coyotes chased a bighorn lamb in a pursuit that was both high drama and inevitably brief. Once the lamb bolted from the relative safety of the high rocks in its frantic attempt to escape, it became easy prey for the swifter, longer-legged predators.
