Mr. Bighorn Learns a Lesson: Don't shatter your image

Ed Bailey was watching football on television Sunday when he saw a bighorn sheep eyeing a window in his split-level home. After staring at the glass for about three hours, the ram lowered his head and rammed it.

Mr. Bailey said the confused animal failed to break the glass on his first two tries. His third landed him in the Bailey home, where he spent another three hours in a dazed state. The ram eventually left on his own through the broken window.

Authorities speculate the animal thought his reflection was a rival ram and decided to fight for any ewes that might be in the area.
