California Department of Fish and Wildlife creates 1st bighorn sheep herd in 25 years

from Sierra Sun Times

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife, along with volunteers from around the state, have established a new herd of federally endangered Sierra Nevada bighorn sheep. "This is the first reintroduction effort of a new herd of Sierra Nevada bighorn sheep since 1988," said Tom Stephenson, CDFW bighorn recovery program leader. Historically, Sierra bighorn were abundant throughout the Sierra Nevada; however, by the 1970s, only two herds remained. Disease spread by domestic sheep and unregulated commercial hunting are believed to have caused their demise. more
