Men working under the direction of the state Game and Fish Department recently trapped seven mountain sheep in the Jackson Hole country. It was the first time in the United States that the wily animals ever have been captured alive, according to Dr. Robert A. Hocker, game commissioner. The sheep were immediately taken to Sheridan where they were released on a preserve in the Big Horn Mountains for the purpose of propagation. Weeks of work were required before the catch was made. Skilled hunters built corrals along a sheep runway near the head of Flat Creek and placed hay in the trap. Eventually the sheep walked into it, after the had become accustomed to the corrals. Dr. Hocker said 13 more sheep will be taken to Sheridan later this year.

There was 25 pounds of large mouth bass, 160 fish placed in the Caballo Lake and 135 bullhead catfish, weighing 45 pounds in the McClelland reservoir. The revealment of this activity was delayed until the close of the fishing season, so the fisherman would not fish them too closely before they become established.
