Wild Sheep Restoration Survives the Farm Bill
The Wild Sheep Foundation’s (WSF) purpose is to, “Put and Keep Wild Sheep on the Mountain.” One of the largest hurdles in fulfilling that purpose is potential for disease transmission between domestic sheep and goats and wild sheep. Domestic sheep carry bacteria called Mycoplasma ovipneumoniae that, when contracted by wild sheep, can cause pneumonia leading to an all-age die-off and complete eradication of that wild sheep herd.
