Collared bighorn sheep in the Laramie Peak herd is part of an ongoing disease surveillance study that hopes to identify respiratory pathogens that are known to affect bighorn sheep.
Data from the Douglas Creek herd is going to be used in habitat selection to prioritize future habitat projects, and will provide resource use comparisons pre- and post-Mullen Creek fire.
