New Mexico wildlife officials consider delisting endangered desert bighorn sheep

from The Republic

The New Mexico Game and Fish Department is considering removing desert bighorn sheep form the state's list of endangered species. The department is planning public hearings this fall in Truth or Consequences and Deming to discuss the proposal. Once one of New Mexico's most imperiled native species, the desert bighorn population has grown from fewer than 70 in 1980 to about 565 in several mountain ranges. Transplanting efforts and cougar control have helped the numbers increase. more
