Date set for bighorn sheep release at Big Bend Ranch State Park  

About 40 desert bighorn sheep will be captured at Elephant Mountain Wildlife Management Area using a helicopter and moved by trailer to Big Bend Ranch State Park starting the morning of Tuesday, Dec. 21, according to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD).

It’s the latest phase of a multi-partner restoration project begun in 1954 and the first bighorn reintroduction at a Texas state park, according to the agency. 

TPWD plans to make available high quality photos and video immediately following the release via web download. For an overview of Texas bighorn restoration, see a TPWD video on YouTube that shows a similar capture/release operation several years ago.
