Letter to Congress to protect Bighorn Sheep

Thursday, April 12, 2012

The attached coalition letter to Congress is to oppose any inclusion in the FY12 House/Senate Interior Appropriation legislation of Congressman Mike Simpson’s provisions from the FY12 House Interior Appropriation legislation that would derail on-going efforts to recover declining populations of Bighorn Sheep, one of the nation’s most iconic wildlife species. The House Interior Appropriation provisions would prevent public land managers from proceeding with science-based efforts to protect and recover Bighorn Sheep populations by separating them from disease-carrying domestic sheep on public lands.
