Hunters may be tapped to kill off Montana bighorn herd
The Spokesman-Review
Montana officials want to use an aggressive public hunting campaign to kill off a diseased herd of 30-40 bighorn sheep in the Tendoy Mountains southeast of Dillon. State wildlife commissioners recently gave preliminary approval to a plan to remove the Tendoy herd beginning this fall and restock the area with about 50 healthy wild sheep, the Associated Press reports. Over-the-counter hunting licenses would cost $125 for residents and $750 for nonresidents. If hunters do not kill all the sheep, state officials said they would be removed by aerial gunning and other means.

New green overpass will let wildlife cross 6 lanes of highway
Good News Network
Why did the wildlife cross the interstate? Because it had a lush landscaped bridge to do so. Recently, Washington State Department of Transportation crews broke ground on the state's first animal overpass, a 150-foot wide-bridge surrounded by native trees and planted with vegetation designed to let bears, elk, otters and even mice pass over the ever-busy I-90 expressway.
