Domestic sheep and goats on WDFW lands

Rule-making status: Preproposal

The department is considering rule changes that are needed to prevent the spread of disease to bighorn sheep from domestic sheep and goats on department lands.

There is an existing threat on department land where pack goats are in close vicinity to wild bighorn sheep. The current threat of disease transmission could have dire impacts on State bighorn sheep populations.
