In this Thursday, April 17, 2014 photo, sheep run to join the flock on Rhodes St. early morning in Carson City, Nev. Hundreds of sheep released last week in the hills on the city's west side are munching on cheatgrass and other emerging vegetation to reduce the risk of catastrophic wildfires this summer. The sheep have become a familiar sight in this capital city since 2006, two years after the Waterfall Fire swept from wildland areas into Carson City's suburban neighborhoods, destroying 17 homes and damaging 14 others.
