Biologist Wins National Award

The Foundation for North American Wild Sheep has recognized Idaho Fish and Game biologist Karen Rudolph for her work on bighorn sheep disease.

At its annual convention in Reno January 25, the Foundation presented Rudolph an award for her research on sheep disease following the 1995-96 die-off in Hells Canyon. Rudolph's work involving blood protein analysis is considered groundbreaking in investigating bighorn disease.

Rudolph works at the department's wildlife lab in Caldwell where she also does forensic investigations for the enforcement bureau.
