Bighorn sheep were recently seen roaming the yard of a resident in the Oro Valley area, wildlife officials say.
According to the Arizona Game and Fish Department, if bighorn sheep are seen roaming through your neighborhood, that's all they're doing — roaming.
Particularly, young rams like to explore new territory, said department spokesman Mark Hart.
The animals aren't seeking water. "Setting water out tends to keep them in human occupied areas," the department said on Twitter, adding that they can go a week without water.
"What we don't want is for them to persist in residential areas," Hart said.
Hart added that if anyone is interested in providing water for wildlife in their natural environments across the state, they can make a donation here.

Catalinas foothills homeowners: if you see bighorns in your neighborhood, know they are not seeking water, just roaming. Setting water out tends to keep them in human occupied areas. Keep them safe. Water is available in nature. Can go one week without H2O. Vid by Dawna Phillips. pic.twitter.com/DSNzMHlB8N— AZ Game & Fish Dept (@azgfdTucson) July 18, 2019
