1 bighorn sheep released to the Catalinas found dead
The Explorer News
One of the more than 30 Desert bighorn sheep released Nov. 18 to the Santa Catalina Mountains was found dead by Arizona Game and Fish Department staff along the eastern edge of Sutherland Ridge near the headwaters of Romero Canyon. The discovery was made after a mortality signal from the sheep's GPS radio collar was detected during an aerial survey. All but one of the bighorn sheep were fitted with the collars.

Deseret News

The Division of Wildlife Resources will host the free event on Dec. 7 along the Green River in southeastern Utah. "Bighorns are in the rut this time of year," said Brent Stettler, regional conservation outreach manager for the DWR, "so they're less wary of people."

US offers reward in wildlife-trade fight
The New York Times
Taking a page from the battle against international drug cartels, the United States announced recently a $1 million reward for information to help dismantle one of Asia's largest wildlife-trafficking syndicates. In what officials said was the first time such a reward had been offered, the State Department said it was targeting a syndicate based in Laos, the impoverished and authoritarian Southeast Asian country whose government, investigators say, has been uncooperative in stopping a thriving trade of African ivory, rhino horns, tiger bones and endangered animals harvested by the thousands from Asian jungles.

Female hunters increasing, census numbers indicate
The Columbus Dispatch
Years of marketing efforts to bring women into the ranks of hunters appear to be making headway. Women account for about 11 percent of the nation's 13.7 million hunters, National Geographic reported recently using figures gleaned from the latest U.S. Census Bureau data. That's an increase of about 25 percent from 2006, when about 9 percent of women said they hunted. Including men and women ages 16 and older, the number of hunters increased about 9 percent, from 12.5 million in 2006 to 13.7 million in 2011.

Mountain goats tiptoe into fragile sheep country in northwest Wyoming
MIssoulian
A pathogen that's linked to fatal pneumonia has been detected in the nonnative mountain goats that are expanding into the territory of the fragile Teton bighorn sheep herd. Wyoming Game and Fish Department biologists tranquilized four mountain goats — three nannies and a billy — from the Palisades herd in April. They took nasal and tonsil swabs and blood and fecal samples, in part to determine if the herd carries the bacteria strain Mannheimia haemolytica.

Bighorns, water discussed at hearing
The Columbia Valley Pioneer
About 40 Columbia Valley, Wash., residents came to a public hearing on a proposed bylaw that would include the Dry Gulch-Radium Resort corridor and Wilmer into the Steamboat-Jubilee Mountain Official Community Plan — and a few had concerns that the plan does not adequately protect bighorn sheep. "There's two paragraphs here on bighorn sheep," said Invermere resident Chris Espinel. "Given the importance of the sheep — if this is all there is (in the plan), it seems pretty insufficient. There's not enough to protect the bighorn sheep."
