EXCHANGE QUAKE LAKE BIGHORNS

CAMERON, Mont. _ If there’s anything better than seeing a bighorn ram, horns fully curled, it’s seeing 12. The number seemed to keep growing on a recent morning here, the tan bodies of wild sheep standing out against the steep white slope at the southern end of the Madison Range. Ewes and lambs were grouped up. Rams were interspersed throughout, and some wandered around alone, looking every bit majestic. And, every time it seemed they’d been counted, Julie Cunningham, a biologist for Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks, spotted another. By Michael Wright, Bozeman Daily Chronicle
