Bighorn Sheep

Below is an image of some Bighorn Sheep on the Colville Indian Reservation.

A reintroduction effort of bighorn sheep began in 2008. Tribal wildlife biologists worked with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife to transport 113 California bighorns to Hellgate and that took three years. Several ground and aerial captures took place in order to surplus bighorns from three existing populations in Washington State.
