MOUNTAIN GOAT STUDY

JACKSON — A pathogen that's linked to fatal pneumonia has been detected in the nonnative mountain goats that are expanding into the territory of the fragile Teton bighorn sheep herd. Wyoming Game and Fish Department biologists tranquilized four mountain goats — three nannies and a billy — from the Palisades herd in April. They took nasal and tonsil swabs and blood and fecal samples, in part to determine if the herd carries the bacteria strain Mannheimia haemolytica. By Mike Koshmrl, Jackson Hole News & Guide.

DINOSAUR FIND

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — The recent discovery of three Triceratops fossils in Wyoming could include the most complete skeleton of the three-horned dinosaur to date. Until the discovery last month near Newcastle, Wyo., just west of South Dakota's Black Hills, only two relatively complete Triceratops skeletons had ever been found, the Sioux Falls Argus Leader reported (http://argusne.ws/13wEeUF ). The plant-eating dinosaurs that lived more than 65 million years ago often were meals for predators, which left behind only their skulls for dinosaur hunters to find.

DODGERS-ROCKIES

DENVER — Although Hyun-Jin Ryu (6-2) is slated to start Sunday in the series finale against the Colorado Rockies, he's dealing with a sore foot and he isn't sure he will be able to take the mound. If he can't, the injury-riddled Dodgers are expected to call up a pitcher from the minors. The Rockies will go with Jorge De La Rosa (6-3). By Pat Graham. (Game starts at 2:10 p.m. MT)
