ABSTRACT
The article reports that moose from Utah and bighorn sheep from Colorado where swapped to keep both populations of animals healthy. Many moose were moved to their new home in Colorado by means of helicopters. The idea for animal swap began when Roger Shenkel of Colorado thought of bringing moose to Grand Mesa for the first time. Utah needed more bighorn sheep because their numbers have declined.
