Bighorn sheep are dying in the California desert, and experts aren't sure why.

At least 20 desert bighorn sheep have died in a San Gorgonio mountain population in Southern California, 100 miles east of Los Angeles. The cause of death? Pneumonia, most likely from domestic sheep or goats, though wildlife specialists are examining other possible causes, including pathogens from feral cattle to the west and disease from a different bighorn group to the south.
