We will have a guest speaker joining us on The Montana Outdoor Radio Show this Saturday morning at 7:00am.  Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks game warden, Casey Prell will be with us to talk about an unexpected and wild day he recently had when he saved a bighorn sheep.  You can listen online via our Facebook page, our website MontanaOutdoor.com or you can listen via our statewide radio network at www.montanaoutdoor.com/radio-show/our-crew.

Montana FWP posted on their Facebook page details of the warden being dispatched to aid a bighorn sheep tangled up in a four-strand barbed wire fence. The ram had apparently been caught up in the fence for a lengthy period of time and was close to complete exhaustion and death.
