(Lander, WY) – The Wyoming Game and Fish Department is in the process of evaluating the potential to re-introduce bighorn sheep into the Sweetwater Rocks area.

This evaluation is the result of a local landowner request to the Wyoming Game and Fish Commission to consider the merits of reintroducing bighorn sheep into this portion of Wyoming.
