George Thierbach, director (Radium-Edgewater area) of the East Kootenay Big Game Club, presents Graham Kerslake, president of the Radium Hot Springs Chamber of Commerce, a cheque for $2,000. The money will go towards the mounting of a bighorn sheep that was struck and killed in the Village of Radium Hot Springs last December.

This bighorn sheep mount will be on permanent display at the Radium Visitor Information Centre for all to see and to learn about the bighorn sheep in our area. The mount will be the property of the Village of Radium Hot Springs to ensure it will remain on display for all locals and visitors to seeĀ  and learn from and take pictures of as long as it is in existence. This educational bighorn sheep kiosk is made possible by the Radium Chamber of Commerce working within the partnership spirit with the Village of Radium Hot Springs, the East Kootenay Big Game Club and Alpine Taxidermy studio. The ram is one of the approximately 15 bighorn sheep that are struck annually in and around the village.
