This Sunday, Aug. 17, 2014 photo provided by Riverside County Animal Control shows a bighorn sheep stuck in a canal near the Arnold Palmer course at the PGA West Country Club in La Qunita, Calif. Peninsula bighorn sheep, an endangered species, often roam onto golf courses to graze on soft grass. Animal Control Officer Kyle Stephens said the animal appeared lethargic and he could see hoof marks where the sheep had tried to pull himself out, but algae or moss made the sloped surface too slick to climb. Stephens used his control stick to loop one of the sheep’s horns and pulled the animal out. Its gender wasn't noted. (AP Photo/Riverside County Animal Control, Kyle Stephens)LA QUINTA, Calif. (AP) — A bighorn sheep is back in the hills of Riverside County after being rescued from a golf-course canal in the desert near Palm Springs.
