Sheep Kill

NPR's John Biewen reports from Salt Lake City on an almost forgotten chapter in U.S. military history. 30 years ago next month, six thousand of sheep were killed in the Utah desert. The army has released new evidence, and is beginning slowly to admit that nerve gas from military exercises in the area may have caused the animals' deaths.
