Forty years of cooperative efforts to rebuild the herds were paying off, but now a major disease outbreak at Mojave National Preserve poses a major threat to the majestic animals.

Endangered bighorn sheep die in separate accidents
The Desert Sun
Two endangered Peninsular bighorn sheep died in separate accidents, a California wildlife official said. One sheep was hit on Highway 74 near Carrizo Road in Mountain Center. The other drowned in the Coachella Canal near Lake Cahuilla in La Quinta. Both were Class IV rams — the largest males of the breed. There are just 100 bighorn sheep living in the San Jacinto and Santa Rosa mountains. They are the first bighorn casualties of the year, California Fish & Wildlife biologist Kevin Brennan said.

The Spectrum
Utah's big game hunting seasons loom. By now, you have your license for the given target species but otherwise, are you ready? First up is archery mule deer (Aug. 17 to Sept. 13). Veteran bowmen know the deer will be high in the August heat and near water.
