August 1, 2008 (B): Sheep on roof

Sorry but if I didnt post this now I would forget, I have just seen this on the local news on the TV.

Roof-scaling sheep
A sheep that managed to climb onto the roof of a two-storey house tumbled to the ground after resisting the efforts of rescuers.

Three fire crews used an aerial platform in an attempt to free the animal, which had clambered onto the roof after getting onto a small outbuilding.

A crowd gathered outside the terraced cottages in Harrogate, North Yorks to watch the unlikely rescue attempt.

But the male sheep, who had been munching on roof moss as the drama unfolded, fled from the firemen as they attempted to shepherd him onto the platform.

He ran to a neighbouring slate roof which had become slippery in the rain, and tumbled to earth, breaking a leg.

"It slipped off the front of the property and landed," said Ben Cairns, from Harrogate Fire Station Green Watch.

"It was fine, although its leg was injured. We left it with villagers who knew the local farmer.

"Every effort was made to protect the animal from becoming harmed."

He added: "It's possibly the most unusual animal that we have attempted to rescue from a roof."

The animal is thought to have got into the gardens of the terraced cottages after escaping from its field.

Maybe it was a mountain goat in its past life

Maybe he was looking for his phony friends.

A photo and a recipe in one - sheep on a shingle.

Funny - as soon as I saw the top of the first pic I thought -Yorkshire!
Stupid sheep.

Why do you say stupid sheep? Maybe it doesn't want to end up in Farmer John's stew pot.

Cloud  Friday Aug 1 04:23 PM

well, gee. Their "rescue" attempt resulted in a broken leg. Seems to me if they had just left the darn thing alone it would find its way down all by its lonesome. Without the fracture.

If the sheep had died, would they read a "ewelogy"?

Nothing unusual about sheep in high places.

Reminds me of this (near Helena, MT as I recall), cars from both directions scared the doe over the railing of the bridge. Luckily, there was a train underneath. Now what?!...from

He's probably raised for wool. So in fact he's just got himself a broken leg and is three steps closer to the pot for his antics.

I was immediately reminded of "Sheep In a Jeep."

You'd think the sheep would get brighter with all these lamb posts. hahaha

Oh. Oh, I think you broke something there Shel. Oww.

Why? Does he produce better wool at roof level?

Edit: Come to think of it, yes, mountain goats/sheep do yield better wool
