Whiskey Mountain Sheep Threatened

(Riverton/AP) – A study of sheep on Whiskey Mountain is continuing as part of a project to save their lives.

Experts believe pneumonia is threatening the existence of the bighorn sheep herd.

Wyoming Game and Fish biologist Greg Anderson says there was a similar outbreak in 1991 and half the herd was lost.

Game and Fish biologists are testing medical samples but there is little they can do with the information now.

They hope a cure will be available at some point.
