State to kill some bighorn sheep … to save larger herd
By Steve Kiggins Q13 FOX News reporter NACHES, Wash. -- A fast-spreading pneumonia is threatening several herds of bighorn sheep in Yakima County. As a result, the state plans to kill off some of the animals to save others. A highway separates 200 bigh0rn sheep in the Cleman herd from the 50 survivors in the Titon herd. The state may have to kill off what's left of the Titon herd as a precaution so that they don't infect the Clemans.
