ANTELOPE ISLAND, Utah -- Several big horn sheep were airborne over Utah recently as wildlife officials relocated several animals from Antelope Island to other areas.

The relocation efforts are necessary to manage populations of the big horn sheep on the island, and FOX 13 photojournalist Darcy Stapleford captured the process on camera, including the high-flying component of the transfer. See the video above for details.
