Filmed in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta, it is the first of its kind to cover all the behaviors of the Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep.
One of the most exciting rituals in all of nature is the annual rutting season of the Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep. Filmmaker Leon Lorenz takes you off the beaten track of Jasper National Park and into its wilderness areas to film their unique behaviors. He also takes you into Cadomin, Alberta where some of the largest rams live. Watch close and exciting wild action as they engage in spectacular confrontations.
On cliffs the 18 month old yearlings display a "catch me if you can" attitude as they literally run circles around the mature rams which are in pursuit of the ewes. Their agility and youthful energy make for very exciting chases. See rams being rolled over, teeboned down the mountains, knocked over cliffs, coyotes interacting with a herd of sheep and so much more.
This video is the first of its kind to cover all the behaviors of the Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep throughout the rutting season. It truly brings out the strength, finesse and majestic beauty of these animals. All age groups will find it very entertaining and educational.
