A helicopter flies in a bighorn sheep, which dangles feet below the chopper. Researchers are trying to protect the Jackson herd of bighorns from pneumonia, which has killed off wild sheep for decades.

KDNK's Morgan Neely has Monday's news, including a recap of 2022’s fire season, and a look at a surprising threat to bighorn sheep populations in the west. Also, there's some tension among law enforcement agencies in the Roaring Fork Valley after Pitkin County elected a democrat as sheriff. In Denver, the state legislature’s largest Black caucus ever led a commemoration to Martin Luther King, Jr. in front of a joint session of the House and Senate last week. And, a new database reveals that museums and universities across the U.S. still hold the remains of more than 100,000 Native Americans — despite a federal law passed more than 30 years ago to help return these remains to tribes.

Morgan is KDNK's News Director. He comes to KDNK with public radio passion and experience. He was a news host, reporter, and operations/programming director at KAJX-Aspen, and has extensive experience working in municipal government.
