In 2016, the Wild Sheep Foundation proposed amending a regulation that would remove domestic sheep and goats from the ‘clean list’ and add permit requirements for sheep and goat owners and fencing requirements for those within 15 air miles of Dall sheep habitat. This proposal was known as “Prop 90,” the proposal was postponed at the 2016 Board of Game meeting after significant outcry by the public and others citing a lack of authority to regulate domestic animals (under authority of DEC) and the lack of any information that would demonstrate that wild sheep populations are at risk of contracting pathogens from domestic species.
Proposal 64 is the new number for this proposal and is scheduled to be brought back up at the Board of Game’s statewide meeting November 10-17, 2017 at The Lakefront in Anchorage.
The Board of Game is accepting public comments on proposals through October 27th. You can find information on this proposal, and others, as well as information on submitting comments here.
