Those things probably would have gone and repopulated saddle mountain. Silly that they killed them because they might have come in contact with domestics

Why silly?

If they wandered into one of the neighboring herds and caused a massive die off, we'd be screaming about wdfw incompetence.

Take them and put them on some suitable bighorn habitat that doesn’t currently have any sheep, or just monitor them and see where they go, from Hanford they aren’t far from getting into the white bluffs or saddle mountains and they might just decide to stay and populate a new area at some point nature needs to be allowed to take its own course a little

Did they come from an infected herd?
:fire.:

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

They don’t know, and if you read the article they say there is a “chance” they’ve already made contact with domestic sheep so they decided to euthanize them

You think with just 4 they could of caught them and tested them.  I dont know about repopulating a area it looks like they are all juveniles to me.  Need a women to repopulate.

Yea I didn’t see all the pics the 1st time, 4 young rams but still doesn’t seem they needed to eliminate them on a chance they may have made contact with domestic sheep

Not hard to figure out they either came from the Selah Butte herd or the southern Quilomeme herd. There's been sheep in years past on the south side of I90 at Vantage and also under the 82 overpass at Lmuma Ck. Not super far forneither to travel. Both herds have Movi issues. I would have loved to see them capture, test them,  and monitor them until the results came back. If they were clean, transplant them to another area. That takes a lot of equipment and time. Not sure they have that at the moment. :twocents:

Seems a waste to just cull them.

Not something that interests me, but why not have a list of folks who would be willing to notch their OIL sheep tag on these kinds of deals? WDFW could even make a few bucks....we all know how they like the $$.
