New pics released of 3rd baby bighorn

TUCSON - A third bighorn lamb has been spotted in the Catalina Mountains, according to an update posted to the Arizona Game and Fish website.

The lamb was spotted on the same day Game and Fish officials confirmed a 12th death in the relocated group of bighorn.

"The Arizona Game and Fish Department confirmed a bighorn sheep mortality Tuesday, Feb. 18, in the Santa Catalina Mountains. The ram's cause of death is under investigation," the alert on the website said.

A group of 31 sheep were moved from a mountain range near Yuma last year in an effort to restore the species in the Catalinas.
