Drone seen harrassing bighorn sheep at Zion NP

Within days of Yosemite National Park officials warning visitors it was illegal to fly drones in the park, volunteers at Zion National Park in Utah say they saw a drone harassing wildlife in their park.

The Zion volunteers say they watched as a remote-controlled drone flew close to a herd of bighorn sheep on the eastern side of the park. They observed the herd scattering at the approach of the drone with several young sheep separated from the adults by the drone, a park release said. Harassment of wildlife within the park is illegal, as is the use of drones.
