GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) - Twenty-one bighorn sheep have been transplanted to the Sheep Creek drainage south of Cascade.

The sheep were captured in the Missouri River Breaks north of Lewistown where they were outgrowing the habitat.

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks spokesman Bruce Auchly says the 21 released at Sheep Creek consisted of two lambs, three yearling rams and 16 ewes.

Auchly tells the Great Falls Tribune (https://gftrib.com/1uFvVla) that sheep already inhabited Sheep Creek drainage before the transplant.
