Stashed in: Sheep!

To save this post, select a stash from drop-down menu or type in a new one:

By 1940, the bighorn population had plummeted to fewer than 20,000, isolated in tiny enclaves scattered across the Western states.

In recent decades, state wildlife management agencies have undertaken extensive conservation work to help bring bighorn sheep back from the brink. Much of the work focuses on capturing bighorns from successful herds and relocating these sheep to other areas where the species once thrived.

All right, I'm giving in and making a sheep stash.

Live, sheep, live!
