For most of us, counting sheep leads to dozing off. For big game biologist Mike Cox, it’s a rewarding part of the job, since it means taking bighorn sheep from overabundant herds and moving them environments with the space and resources to sustain them.
In fact, last week Nevada generously airlifted 49 bighorn sheep to the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area in Utah.
So who determines how and when these sheep get relocated throughout the Western states? Does Nevada have a surplus?

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
