COLORADO SPRINGS – Colorado Parks and Wildlife officers are using a drone to survey bighorn sheep on the western side of the city.

Wildlife officials are surveying Queens Canyon and surrounding areas of Glen Eyrie for the sheep.

Officers are using hi-res goggles and monitors to navigate and pilot the drone around the area, which gives them a bird’s eye view of the sheep in the valley below.
