DOUGLAS COUNTY, Colo. — One time a year, Rocky Mountain bighorn Sheep have lambs, and that time is now.

Joe Orgill, a Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) volunteer at Waterton Canyon captured a video of lambs running around near the Strontia Springs Dam.

He said he’s in the canyon four times a week and has been waiting for the little ones to be born.

“They are born on the steep cliffs to protect themselves from other predators that cannot navigate the cliffs,” Orgill said.” So the cliffs give them protection.”
