human doing CLASSIC bighorn sheep move...

Apparently, ungulates are NOT the only creatures who can do this.

This is from 2008 so pardon if you've seen this, but this is JUST like what a friend saw when hiking down the Grand Canyon, home of narrow trails with CRAZY drop offs on one side and sheer cliffs on the other.

He was hiking at a good pace, turned the corner and startled a bighorn sheep who was headed right toward him.

There was basically nowhere to go.

Anyhow, the sheep quickly assesses the situation, and runs UP THE CLIFF, OVER my (6'2") friend's head, then back down to the trail.

My friend just stood there, stunned.

Who knew ball girls could do this, too.



P.S. Typo for bighorn sheep was "big horn cheep." Brought up ads for cheap cars. =)

  1. Wow. That was one of the best catches I've ever seen. She must be part bighorn.
