Bighorn sheep released here

Canyon Mountain became Oregon’s fourth bighorn sheep area Monday afternoon as Oregon Game Commission personnel and Malheur National Forest staffers cooperated in releasing 21 sheep at the Berry Ranch on U.S. Highway 395.

The sheep quickly took off and headed up the mountain.

Other bighorn sheep areas in Oregon are Hart Mountain in Lake County, the Steens Mountains in Harney County and the Owyhees.

Denney reported that he has been working on the game transplanting operation since 1966. The mountain sheep, once virtually extinct, are expected to thrive in the wilderness area in which they were headed.

Although occasional sheep permits are issued to hunters, sheep numbers are watched carefully by Game Commission personnel to keep their number in proper balance.
