WILDLIFE — Bam Bam, the bighorn sheep whose penchant for butting cars made him an international star, died of natural causes in Wyoming last week. He was believed to be 12.
Bam Bam was the last of the Wheatland-area Sinks Canyon State Park bighorn herd, surviving a plague of pneumonia that wiped out the park’s sheep population in the middle of the last decade. Friends said he loved a scratch on the ear, Doritos and a good head butt.
I don't post this to support anyone's notion that feeding wildlife is a good idea. It's lucky no one was hurt by this ram. But I like the rest of the story as described nicely here by Benjamin Storrow in the Star-Tribune.
