    Bighorn sheep being harassed by drones

    Associated Press 12:25 p.m. MST May 5, 2014

    SALT LAKE CITY — Officials at Zion National Park say someone has been hovering a drone above the park's bighorn sheep.

    Park volunteers saw a herd of sheep scatter after being buzzed by an unmanned aerial vehicle on the weekend of April 20-21, separating the animals from their young.

    Park Superintendent Jim Milestone said in a statement Monday it's illegal to fly a drone in the park in southwest Utah. Violators could be subject to up to six months in prison and a $5,000 fine.

    This is the same Park Service which has made it a crime to use a tripod in a National Park.
