Famous Ram Memorialized At Sinks Canyon Park
LANDER, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Department of State Parks and Cultural Resources plans to hold an event later this month to commemorate the last bighorn ram that lived in Sink’s Canyon.
The department plans to hold the event on July 20. It’s dedicated to a late bighorn ram that officials had called Bam Bam. The department is trying to raise $5,000 to have a full- body taxidermy mount and diorama about bighorns installed in the park visitor center.
The ram died last winter. It was the last sheep from a herd that once numbered about 150 animals. The ram became well-known for his habit of ramming into vehicles, often leaving substantial dents in them.
