GRASSY BUTTE — North Dakota’s bighorn sheep herd grew by 24 animals this month, with the relocation of two young rams and 22 ewes from the site of a coal mine near Jasper National Park in western Alberta.
BISMARCK – A coalition of oil producers and royalty owners came out Monday against a proposal being considered by the North Dakota Industrial Commission that would set rules to minimize the impact of oil drilling on so-called “extraordinary places.”
KILLDEER, N.D. -- A national extreme racing championship is going from tropical Belize to the North Dakota Badlands.
The race, said Dunn County Jobs Development Authority economic development director Carie Boster, will show others “not only legendary North Dakota but legendary Dunn County.”
The North American Adventure Racing Series coming to North Dakota is no small feat — the 2013 championship, which for weather reasons takes place next month, is in Belize.
MEDORA, N.D. — When it was suggested Monday that he was born to be a rodeo star, Brad Gjermundson simply shrugged.
“Growing up, we had ponies to ride and that’s all we really knew,” Gjermundson said. “We played rodeo all the time and, once we got old enough, my dad would take us with him sometimes when he went to rodeo.”
Born in Richardton, Gjermundson said he dreampt of becoming a rodeo champion — he and his two brothers plastered their walls with posters rodeo greats such as Larry Mahan and Jim Shoulders — but few could have predicted the kid from western North Dakota would go on to win four saddle bronc riding world championships.
THEODORE ROOSEVELT NATIONAL PARK, N.D. — A flurry of activity took over a small part of Theodore Roosevelt National Park’s South Unit on Monday.
But it wasn’t the crowd of veterinarians and National Park Service employees who made most of the noise — after all, if they weren’t calm and quiet, the horses wouldn’t be either.
All in the name of science, a seemingly unlikely pairing of athletes and scientists will descend upon the North Dakota Badlands in an effort to catalog the area and determine if the oil boom is affecting the wilderness from the Killdeer Mountains to the Elkhorn Ranch to Sully Creek State Park, south of Medora.
GRAND FORKS — The North Dakota Game and Fish Department recently deployed a helicopter crew to capture and relocate 12 bighorn sheep in an effort to reduce road-kill incidents along a heavily traveled stretch of U.S. Highway 85 north of the Little Missouri River near the North Unit of Theodore Roosevelt National Park.
MEDORA, N.D. — Paleontologist Becky Barnes with the North Dakota Geological Survey slowly removed mudstone flakes from her grid at a fossil dig site on Thursday. Working throughout the morning, she uncovered the remnant of a fossilized fish — identified as an Amia — that swam in the region’s swamps 60 million years ago.
