The Rut   Leave a comment

Here’s why they call male bighorn sheep rams. During the mating season or “rut” in November and December, the rams butt heads while sparring for females. The massive impacts can break horns and sends a cracking noise echoing through the mountains. It’s an incredible natural event to witness.

Bighorn sheep are famously elusive and quick to avoid human contact, so this photo of a napping ram at Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming is a special find. Photo by Bill Cochran. Posted on Tumblr by the US Department of the Interior, 5/28/16.

Desert Bighorn Sheep   1 comment

This picture of a Desert Bighorn Sheep was captured at the Devil’s Punchbowl Natural Area in northern Los Angeles County.  The fencing at the peak is around the “Devil’s Chair.”

This ewe is outside of the range defined by the California Department of Fish & Wildlife … but it’s great to see her on top of her world!
