Bighorns' proposed return to Catalinas raises hunting debate
The Arizona Daily Star
When the news came out that bighorn sheep will be reintroduced to the Santa Catalinas, suspicions quickly arose: They must be doing it so hunters can kill the sheep. Locals such as Tommy Di Maggio, who runs a pack-goat outfitting business in the Rincons and Catalinas, concluded the whole project doesn't make sense without a hunting motive. "This is another opportunity to have a place where you can cull, harvest, bighorn sheep," said Di Maggio, who is a hunter himself, though he doesn't like the idea of moving sheep to hunt them later.

Mountain goat research coming to Logan Pass in Glacier National Park
The National Parks Traveler
A long-term research project into mountain goats and humans is expected to begin later this summer in Glacier National Park, where researchers want to better understand how the goats are impacted by people, cars and infrastructure. The research, being conducted by park staff in partnership with the University of Montana, is to study how mountain goats are affected by roads, people and trails in the Logan Pass area. The research is a critical component of the current Going-to-the-Sun Road Corridor Management planning effort, as human-wildlife interactions within the corridor is an identified issue of concern, park officials said in a release.

To avoid aggressive mountain goats, hikers advised to be careful where you go
The Daily Journal
To avoid confrontations with aggressive mountain goats in Washington, hikers are advised to be careful where they go. KPQ reports some hikers in the Enchantment area of the Alpine Lakes Wilderness have been having close encounters with mountain goats. The Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest says goats are attracted to trails because they crave salt, found in urine. Hikers are urged to use toilets and not urinate close to trails.

Sheep counters brave Anza-Borrego heat
The San Diego Union-Tribune
You have to be a special kind of crazy to spend four days just sitting in the summer heat of Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. Fortunately, there are enough of those kinds of folks to successfully complete the 43rd annual Desert Bighorn Sheep Count, sponsored by the Anza-Borrego Foundation. These hardy volunteers even call themselves "Extreme Volunteer Sheep Counters." This year they endured high humidity and temperatures that topped 112 degrees, but tallied 332 bighorn, replacing the 2011 total as the second-largest count. The 2012 count recorded 273 animals. The highest number ever recorded was 356 in 2009.

Gun Geo Marker app tries to locate homes, businesses of gun owners
Fox News
A new Android app asks users to expose the home addresses of gun owners they deem "potentially unsafe" — and share that information with the world. The Gun Geo Marker app, released to Google's Play app store on July 7, invites users to mark the homes and businesses of "suspected unsafe gun owners ... to help others in the area learn about their geography of risk from gun accidents or violence." The app bills itself as merely a tool to collect information, but it was hit with a firestorm of negative reviews and comments from people worried that it could do more harm than good.

Bam Bam: Beloved bighorn sheep, last of his herd, dies
Missoulian
Bam Bam, the bighorn sheep whose penchant for butting cars made him an international star, died of natural causes at Sybille Canyon near Wheatland, Wyo. He was believed to be 12. Bam Bam was the last of the Sinks Canyon State Park bighorn herd, surviving a plague of pneumonia that wiped out the park's sheep population in the middle of the last decade. Friends said he loved a scratch on the ear, Doritos and a good head butt. "He will be missed," said Randy Wise, naturalist at Sinks Canyon State Park in Fremont County.
