Bighorn Sheep

Season 2011 Episode 27 | 28m 49s | Video has closed captioning.

Marcia Franklin talks about a decision by the Payette National Forest to restrict domestic sheep grazing in order to protect bighorn sheep from pneumonia carried by domestic sheep. Rep. Simpson is sponsoring a rider to the Dept. of Interior appropriations bill to take a five year time-out from implementing such plans in other forests. Bighorn advocates say that could decimate the species.
