Desert Bighorn Sheep

This Bighorn Sheep was just outside of Canyonlands National Park, near Moab Utah.

I had pretty good luck finding these guys in Anza Borrego and Zion last year – but I was thrilled to find them in such a beautiful setting as this!

Check out more wildlife photos.

  1. Hi Ron,

    Great shot!

    Don’t know if you’re aware that the Fish & Wildlife Service has proposed cutting critical habitat for the bighorn in Anza-Borrego and the Santa Rosa/San Jacinto Mtns. If they get their way, those sheep may not be around to photograph much longer.

    A blog post about this plan, with a link to the public comment form, is available here: http://snurl.com/47x7e. It also has a couple of bighorn shots.

    Thanks everyone!

    I wasn’t aware of that issue Larry, thanks for the link, I will have to read further. Is this because of the power-line, or is this something different?

    Ron
