The recent postings relative to monitoring sheep for Cs-137 reminded me of a
situation in the 60's maybe later. DOD did of funded studies with sheep and
I believe radioactive iodine tracers. Some time during this period some
radioactive sheep got loose out west and had to be rounded up. I had a copy
of the story but as with many other files and books is now gone.

Anyone remember this incident or have any information about it.
