Cute! Desert Bighorn Sheep Born at L.A. Zoo
Although you can see them wandering around locally in the Angeles National Forest, it's not often you would come upon a baby bighorn sheep. Luckily, the L.A. Zoo is a partner in a program ensuring their endangered population's (.pdf) survival and today they announced the birth of a lamb.
“This species is considered threatened across its range,” said Jeff Holland, curator of mammals at the zoo. “Population is declining due to drought, predators, disease from domestic sheep and goats, and an inability to move from one mountain range to another because of over development by humans.”
