Delays possible in Sardine Canyon as ranchers move 7,000 sheep

Motorists driving through Sardine Canyon Friday morning may encounter delays, as ranchers move a herd of sheep through a part of the canyon to a winter pasture. Utah Highway Patrol Lt. Lee Perry said the ranchers will be moving the heard along the highway from Mantua into Brigham City. It’s expected to begin around 8:30 a.m. along the southbound lanes of US-89/91. Troopers will be in the canyon warning motorists to watch for ranchers and the sheep. Perry said moving the sheep through the canyon will last about an hour and should primarily only slow traffic heading south. The sheep will then be herded through Brigham City, to a pasture in Corrine. Perry said it is quite a site to see, as the herd of about 7000 sheep, is herded through the canyon.  LINK
