"While this decision does deprive pack goat users of some of their favorite high mountain lakes, I don't want to risk potentially affecting some of the struggling bighorn sheep populations," Alexander said.

Johnathan O'Dell is the small game biologist for the Arizona Game and Fish Department. He's also a seriously dedicated squirrel hunter.
