Deadly Pathogen Confirmed for First Time in Alaska Dall’s Sheep and Mountain Goats

The Bozeman, Mont.-based Wild Sheep Foundation (WSF) was notified today by Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G) officials that Mycoplasma ovipneumoniae (commonly referred to as M.ovi) has been documented in at least 4 Dall’s sheep and 2 mountain goats in Alaska; this represents the first time M.ovi bacteria has been found anywhere in free-ranging Dall’s or Stone’s sheep (also referred to as thinhorn sheep). M.ovi is not endemic to wild sheep or mountain goats in Alaska; transmission from domestic sheep and goats is the only source of this pathogen.
