ZooMontana welcomed Harper, the latest bighorn sheep born at the zoo, on May 26.

Both baby and mom Holly are doing well, and are out on exhibit with two other adult sheep.

The first baby bighorn sheep was born prematurely to Hazel, the other female sheep at the zoo, on April 26, and died less than a week later from complications from being born early.

This is the third year that bighorn lambs have been born at the zoo.
