Effective Separation Domestic and Wild Sheep
For decades, WSF and our network of Chapters and Affiliates have advocated for effective temporal and spatial separation between wild sheep and domestic sheep and/or goats. WSF has advocated for and partnered on dozens of voluntary domestic sheep grazing allotment waivers in multiple states. WSF has engaged the domestic sheep industry, seeking collaboration and trying to improve relationship-building and common understanding. WSF has worked hard with federal and Crown land management agencies, state, provincial and federal wild sheep managers and respective legislatures, our strong network of Chapter and Affiliate leaders, and others to craft long-term solutions designed to achieve and maintain effective separation.
