Nevada Shares Bighorn Sheep With Utah
Nevada Shares Bighorn Sheep With Utah

Listen
AIR DATE: November 13, 2013

For most of us, counting sheep leads to dozing off. For big game biologist Mike Cox, it’s a rewarding part of the job, since it means taking bighorn sheep from overabundant herds and moving them environments with the space and resources to sustain them.

In fact, last week Nevada generously airlifted 49 bighorn sheep to the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area in Utah.

So who determines how and when these sheep get relocated throughout the Western states?  Does Nevada have a surplus?
