[ARCHIVED] Bighorn sheep released in mountains south of Butte

BUTTE - Crews from Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks recently released nine bighorn ewes into the eastern Pioneer Mountains as part of a herd augmentation effort approved by the Montana Fish and Wildlife Commission in November.

The sheep were captured in the Missouri Breaks north of Winifred and released at the BLM Maiden Rock Fishing Access Site south of Butte.

All of the sheep were fitted with radio collars so biologists can monitor their movement in the area.

FWP contacted all area landowners to alert them to the augmentation effort.
