Type of Livestock: Domestic Sheep
Type of Conflict: Bighorn Sheep disease risk
Size of Allotment: 33,646 acres
Location of Allotment: Colorado
Our most recent grazing allotment retirement is located in the Elk Mountains near Aspen, CO. The domestic sheep allotment is largely in the Maroon Bells Wilderness Area and increased contact between domestic sheep and bighorn sheep, consequently increasing potential spread of disease to the bighorn population in the area. The allotment was officially retired in August 2019.
