North Dakota: Bighorn mortality slowing, but only time will tell how many die
The Bismarck Tribune via WSF
Every day without a "beep beep beep beep beep" in his earphones is a good day for big game biologist Brett Wiedmann. The beeps are a radio collar mortality signal and they mean yet another of the state's prized bighorn sheep has died. Starting Aug. 5, in what was a long deadly month, at least 20 of the animals have died of pneumonia in the northern Badlands habitat. Tests show the disease is from contact with domestic sheep. It is spreading among the several bighorn groups in what Wiedmann calls "the hub of the wheel" for bighorns.

Dogs: Hazard or help?
The Arizona Republic
Dogs: Hazard or help? It all depends on the people. Dogs are forbidden in the area of the Santa Catalina Mountains near Tucson, Arizona, where state officials are trying to reestablish a herd of bighorn sheep.
