1 step forward, 2 steps back: Hope, hardship for Black Hills bighorns

from Black Hills Pioneer

From July 19:  Owner of Crow Creek Wildlife Management Service Bob Speirs writes: "The bighorn lambs were as interested in me as I was in them. So curious that for a moment, we all forgot that we teetered on the brink of vertical cliffs south of Deadwood. After a long and smoky summer, the short time I spent with these sheep was among the highlights of my summer. These lambs are the first generation to be “born and bred” in the Black Hills. They are the second lambs to be raised by 26 sheep reintroduced and relocated from Alberta two seasons ago. Graduate student Ty Werdel of Chadron, Neb., was my guide. He is the lead field biologist for this particular group of sheep and is conducting a three-year study for his master's thesis. He shared a few details on the progress the animals are making." more
