Justice: Montana Rancher Accused of Wildlife Importing and Certificate Forgery

A Montana rancher has been working for 10+ years to create giant sheep for hunting.

The things that the rancher is charged with are importing wildlife without approval and forging certificates to allow for inter-state sale and movement of animals. There were many other crimes that were left off the charges because he’s cooperating, and there are several other individuals involved with the scheme out there.
