How to save bighorns: Get domestic sheep off the land

In all my years of hiking in Idaho, especially in the Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness, I never had the good fortune to see a bighorn sheep. But, as an American citizen and taxpayer, I still am a part-owner of the federal public land that encompasses bighorn range in Idaho. How to get domestic sheep off the same range? Tell grazing permittees to remove their woolies and do it now.

Domestic sheep are to blame for the death of wild bighorns.

Read a nice personal view on all this from the Idaho Statesman’s Pete Zimowsky.
