In late fall, 2016, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, the Sierra Nevada Bighorn Sheep Foundation and other agencies collared ewes and lambs. Four rams were translocated to Sequoia-Kings Canyon National Park and five rams went into the Cathedral herd in Yosemite National Park. We are hoping for a big crop of lambs in spring of 2017.
See the Yosemite Conservancy website for more details on this exciting addition to the Cathedral Range herd. Be sure to scroll down to see an action shot of the release.
