Bighorn sheep are skilled mountain climbers. But one group recently made it over the Sierra Nevada crest in record time. As part of an ongoing effort to return endangered Sierra Nevada bighorns to more of their historical range, state and federal wildlife workers captured 14 of the animals in the Inyo National Forest and transported them by helicopter to the Big Arroyo area of Sequoia National Park on the range's west side. The four rams and 10 ewes, all but one of which was pregnant, were moved in late March to a part of the Sierra that bighorns have not occupied for more than a century.

A Central California rancher is being investigated for possible animal neglect after two hikers came across 25 dead sheep that appeared emaciated and malnourished. “What I saw still haunts me,” one of the hikers, Adam Weismuller, told the Tribune . “It was the single most horrible thing I've ever seen.” The sheep were discovered Feb. 28 in the River View Estates area of Heritage Ranch, about 15 miles northwest of Paso Robles, according to the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Department.

Bighorn sheep are skilled mountain climbers. But one group recently made it over the peaks of the Sierra Nevada crest in record time.

Tostep into “Sheep's Head,” Matt Wedel's magnificent exhibition at L.A. Louver, is to feel as if you have fallen, like Alice, through the looking glass. Just inside the entrance stands a 10-foot-tall lamb with a human head that's too big for its body. Made of gorgeously glazed ceramic, the massive icon stares off in three-quarter profile, dwarfing visitors while reminding us what life looked like when we were  3 feet tall: bigger and better than it does now, our experiences of its highs and lows filled with more innocent intensity than we can remember, much less recapture.

An associate pastor charged with raping at least 20 members of his Norwalk church was described by congregants as "a wolf in sheep's clothing" who was "likea magnet to women. " Jorge Juan Castro, 54, targeted female members of Nuevas Buenas Church who were undocumented immigrants and only spoke Spanish, assaulting them at the church or during home visits, authorities said Thursday. He was arrested and charged last week in connection with the alleged crimes, which Los Angeles County sheriff's officials said date back to his arrival in Los Angeles from Argentina in 2004.

Reaching for some of the glamour and danger of the Spanish bull-run city of Pamplona, a New Zealand village ran 2,000 sheep through the middle of town. No one was chased, trampled or gored in the inaugural "Running of the Sheep." And instead of seeking cover, most spectators helped stop the shaggy mob from scurrying everywhere but the right direction. As so-called organizer John Grainger predicted, the result was pure chaos in Te Kuiti, 355 miles north of the capital, Wellington.

Along with polar icecaps and sandy beaches, sheep on a remote Scottish island are gradually shrinking as a result of global warming, according to a study published today in the journal Science. The finding offers unusual proof that large animals are already evolving to adapt to alterations wrought by climate change, experts said. The average weight of sheep in the feral flock has been falling nearly 3 ounces per year since 1985, the researchers reported.

About 75 demonstrators, some dressed as sheep, rallied against a U.S. government agency's plan to slaughter two flocks of Vermont sheep it says are carrying scrapie, an ailment distantly related to the brain-wasting mad cow disease. "At least the sheep have brains," read one of many signs denouncing claims by U.S. Department of Agriculture officials that a few of the Vermont sheep have tested positive for scrapie, which belongs to the category of brain disorders that includes mad cow disease.

A court appearance by developer Art Corona, who is charged with maintaining sheep in violation of city law, has been rescheduled for Aug. 8 in San Pedro Municipal Court. The case had been set for this past Monday, but was postponed because Corona was ill and could not appear in court. Corona has been cited by the city Department of Animal Regulation for failing to remove sheep from a lot on Pacific Avenue near 26th Street, adjacent to his 107-unit Corona Del Mar apartment complex.

SWEETWATER STATION, Wyo. - In the fading afternoon light, the barnyard is turning raucous: the chickens are clucking, peacocks are pacing and sheep are bawling, making the llama a bit nervous. The donkey just works his gums as though chawing on a plug of tobacco. Polly Hinds and Lynda German stand beaming amid the chaos, their old blue tractor in the background, framed by an endless expanse of prairie sky. For the two literary outliers, it is the end of another precious day on their unlikely experiment in the middle of Wyoming's nowhere.

How well do you know Los Angeles County's favorite fair? You may know it's one of the largest county fairs in the nation. But what is the largest food at the fair?  The new attractions? What year did it all begin? An average of 1.5 million people visit each year, roaming the rides and stalls on 487 acres at the Fairplex in Pomona. This year's fair is from Aug. 30 to Sept. 29. But before you go, see how much you know:

By the light of day, the two transgenic baby rabbits look no different from their non-transgenic siblings -- white, fluffy and very cute. But put the whole litter under a black light, and you'll know exactly which two bunnies are special. They'll be glowing bright , fluorescent green. (For daylight and black-light shots of the transgenic rabbits and their littermates, see the photo gallery above). The glowing bunnies were born this month in a lab at the University of Istanbul.

When Arnold Palmer designed his golf course at SilverRock Resort in LaQuinta, he made sure to provide plenty of hazards. But he probably didn't factor in one that showed up in the middle of the 16th fairway Friday afternoon. Suddenly, less than a seven-iron away, a small herd of bighorn sheep appeared. They live high in the adjacent Santa Rosa Mountains and are most often seen standing majestically amid rocks 1,000 feet above. The mountains are their camouflage protection. They took their time, meandering back toward the mountains at the gentle urging of a course marshal in a golf cart.

Re: "Volunteers to Kill Sheep as Last Resort," Feb. 22. It appears to me that The Nature Conservancy is trying to do something that should have been done years ago--that is, restore the natural environment of Santa Cruz Island as it existed before the sailing vessels began their exploration up and down the West Coast of North America. I would say that it is long overdue to eliminate the feral animals from the island. It would be best to mount an intense and short roundup to capture what you can. Kill the remainder; not by poisoning, but by shooting them.

As city animal control officers see it, it's a simple case of illegal sheep. "It's a routine complaint," says Lt. Tim Goffa. "He's maintaining sheep (too close) to the neighborhood dwellings." But in San Pedro, where residents are up in arms over rampant apartment construction, the battle between the city of Los Angeles and developer Art Corona is more complex than that.

Someday you're going to wake up. You'll stir and your eyes will widen and your brain will try to digest what was just imagined. Because you have to be dreaming right now, right? Players like Yasiel Puig just don't materialize in real life. Hits every ball with intent for destruction. Runs like chasing down a cheetah. Throws so hard you fear the ball will ignite on reentry. It's only been 20 games. I repeat, only 20 games ... but jeez, what a 20 games. Twenty games he can't hope to keep duplicating, because, come on, even dreams touch on reality.

PETALUMA, Calif. - As you drive north of San Francisco into Marin and Sonoma counties, the countryside begins to unfold before you. Green pastures, oak and chaparral-covered hillsides and small canyons of redwood trees reveal themselves. Red-tailed hawks and osprey fly overhead, deer graze in the hills and at sunset, bobcats survey the terrain. A setting so lovely that you can't help but think cheese Wait - not wine? Perhaps that too, but we're talking here about the Sonoma Marin Cheese Trail that winds through the countryside, connecting family farms and food artisans that create batches of distinctive cheeses from local grass-fed cows, goats and sheep.
