TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Another baby bighorn has been spotted in the Santa Catalinas, according to Arizona Game and Fish. 

This is the fifth lamb to be born to the ewes released in November, 2013.  A biologist with Arizona Game and Fish has observed the pair. 

There were 31 bighorn sheep released in the area north of Tucson, as part of the Catalina Bighorn Sheep Reintroduction Project.  Since the release, 16 of the adult bighorns have died according to AZ Game and Fish reports, mostly due to predation by mountain lions.

Three mountain lions that have been identified as responsible for sheep deaths have been killed.
