Montana wildlife officials track pneumonia outbreak in bighorn sheep herd

from The Republic

Wildlife officials are monitoring bighorn sheep from a southern Park County, Mont., herd that was hit by pneumonia to gauge the risk of a large-scale die-off of the animals. Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks biologist Karen Loveless told the Livingston Enterprise that five sheep from the afflicted herd near Cinnabar Mountain have been killed since early December. Loveless says three of the sheep carried a strain of pneumonia associated with a 2010 outbreak that killed about 600 bighorn sheep in western Montana. more
