The World-Herald has been in western Canada this week with the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission on the capture of the state's fifth herd of relocated bighorn sheep.
On Tuesday, wildlife experts at the Luscar Mine in the foothills of the Canadian Rockies west of Edmonton, Alberta, captured five rams and 36 ewes. They loaded the animals into four livestock trailers and rumbled Wednesday for the American border.
Follow along as award-winning World-Herald staffers David Hendee and Alyssa Schukar bring you stories, nuggets, photos and video of the sheep's move to a new home in the Pine Ridge, near Harrison, Neb.
Today, get photos, video and Tweets of the capture and journey. Tomorrow and this weekend, read The World-Herald and visit Omaha.com for exclusive coverage of the effort to return this once-native species lost to overhunting and disease.
