This unusual photo was forwarded to my email with the comment that this was a Montana bighorn discovered by a wolf hunter.

Anyone else have information on this?

It appears that the bighorn ram either slipped off the sidehill and hooked its horn or somehow got stuck there in a fight. The end result was that the sheep ended up probably starving to death or breaking its neck.
