Evaluation of a mountain sheep transplant in north central montana usa

The efficacy of using transplants versus encouraging natural recolonization of unoccupied mountain sheep habitat along the East Slope of the Rocky Mountains in Montana was evaluated using information available from response to an epizootic in herds established by transplanting and by colonizing sheep were similar, and did not vary significantly from those observed in established herds in the same mountain complex. Transplanting sheep in this situation appears to have accelerated reoccupation of historic sheep ranges by 40 years.
