Herds of sheep have grazed the Clearwater National Forest over the years. Often it was in old burn areas where browse grew back before trees took over and there is no longer enough for the sheep. They provided wool. Of course they have a distinct sound 'BaaBaa'.
Chuck says he remember the large flocks of sheep being herded up Riverside Ave. in what is called 'Jimgle Town'.
