A giant falls

He spent his last days alone, and now a bighorn ram that could be among the largest in the world has died. The Colorado Division of Wildlife says the ram, thought to be between 12 and 13 years old, was found dead in late November on property owned by Fort Carson. For years, the ram was seen in a small herd on private property west of Pueblo Reservoir, but the DOW believes the old guy was driven away by younger males. Since August, officials from the base and the DOW have watched over the majestic ram.
