Lambs - Fall 2017
It’s been a tough year for lamb survival throughout the range and there are only a handful of lambs alive in our study areas, which include three herds. This is always disappointing news to report, but there’s a potential silver lining. Several collared ewes in the northern Santa Rosa Mountains herd look like they’ll give birth again in November. Fall lambs and ewes having more than one lamb in a year is an amazing phenomenon that we’ve only seen one other time. We’ll be tracking these ewes closely and look forward to reporting our findings, but you can stay informed by following us on Facebook and Instagram.
