Just received this news via an SCI "In The Crosshairs" e-mail:
News from Mongolia
News from an SCI source out of Mongolia indicates that the Government of Mongolia has closed the Altai argali (Ovis ovis ammon) hunt due to a sharp decrease of the argali population, brought about by a severe winter. Also, the Mongolian Government will cut by 30% the total number of argali and ibex tags as compared to last year. SCI is trying to find out more information and will report back to our members at that time.
Latest report is the USFWS will only issue 3 import permits, total, for the Altai Argali to U.S. residents in 2008.
