The film “Counting Sheep” shows what happens when a protected predator threatens an endangered prey? High in California’s Sierra Nevada wilderness, the last few native bighorn sheep are fighting for their survival. Threats from mountain lions have forced wildlife officials to take extraordinary measures to protect the bighorn.
Two remarkable men stand between the bighorn and extinction. An oboe-playing mountain man turn consummate scientist finds an unlikely ally: a mountain lion tracker of skill and instinct–a modern day frontiersman. This dramatic story is played out in the breath-taking remotes reaches of bighorn habitat: jagged cliffs, far flung canyons and narrow ledges two miles high.
“Counting Sheep” won Emmy Awards in 2006 for: BEST DOCUMENTARY and BEST CINEMATOGRAPHY.
Join us on April 24th for this extraordinary film. We meet at the Tuolumne Utilities District board room at 7 in the evening. The address is 18885 Nugget Blvd in Sonora which is just off Tuolumne Rd. Refreshments will be served. See you there!
