Animal rescue team uses net gun to capture and relocate bighorn sheep (VIDEO)

An animal rescue team used net guns to capture bighorn sheep that needed to be relocated.

Native Range, an aerial wildlife capture company, traveled to Mount Centennial in Montana to capture and relocate 40 bighorn sheep, according to the video posted to YouTube.

The three-person crew piled into a helicopter and chased the sheep into the open. The pilot keeps the chopper steady, the gunner immobilizes the sheep with the net gun, and the “mugger” ties the sheep up and prepares them for transport.
