Bighorn sheep are native to the Sweetwater Rocks. Returning wild sheep to the Rocks will create an additional healthy population in Wyoming, provide increased hunting opportunities, and enhance habitats that support numerous species in addition to bighorn sheep.
The decision for reintroduction of bighorn sheep rests in the authority of the Wyoming Game and Fish Commission. The Wyoming Game and Fish Department lists the Bighorn Sheep a species of Greatest Conservation Need based on the Native Species Status Matrix in the Wyoming State Wildlife Action Plan – 2017.
