Bighorn Sheep

Bighorn Sheep.
 
On the backside of the National Elk Refuge in Jackson, WY there are some large rock formations, and on or near those rocks are Bighorn Sheep. It is hit or miss if they will be near the road when you drive through. On the way back from the Teton Raptor Center, we decided to take a few minutes and drive by the area where the sheep frequent. We saw a few so we stopped to photograph. During winter the roads in Jackson are treated with salt and other chemicals that the sheep love to lick off of your tires and vehicles. It is not good to allow them to do so. There is even a lighted sign that says something like “Licking is not allowed”. I know, there is a thousand things that could be said at this point, but it really is directed towards discouraging the sheep to lick your vehicle. Anyway, back to the image. When we parked, this guy decided he wanted to lick our vehicle. I literally had to go over and smack the side of the vehicle for him to leave. He would return and I would run him off. This is the look I got after about the 4th time of me running him off.
