TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - Arizona Game and Fish officials are happy to announce the Bighorn sheep population in southern Arizona is growing.

During a recent population survey of five mountain ranges in southeastern Arizona, including the Santa Catalinas, 300 bighorns were counted.

Last year, the population in the Catalinas was estimated to be 70.

Officials are working hard to gather research to ensure the population continues to grow and thrive.
