Fencing and private land stewardship go hand-in-hand to keep sheep from getting nose-to-nose

from WSF and B.C. Sheep Separation Program

Domestic sheep and wild sheep herds are dangerous liaisons. Although the two species are genetically similar, wild sheep can experience catastrophic die‐offs and suffer chronic long-term effects from respiratory diseases that domestic sheep carry. This has happened many times, on bighorn sheep ranges across western North America, sometimes after a single nose‐to‐nose contact between one wild sheep and one domestic sheep. The B.C. Sheep Separation Program has been working to reduce the risk of such an event occurring to the Bull River bighorn sheep herd in the Rocky Mountain Trench near Cranbrook, British Columbia. more
