Ewe silly thing!
An animal rescuer in southeastern England freed a female sheep who’d gotten an orange traffic cone stuck on her head.
Officials from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals received reports of a “stuck” ewe on a farm in Chorleywood, Hertfordshire, last Sunday.
“We thought it must be stuck in brambles or something like that, but when our officer arrived she realized its head was trapped in the cone,” an RSPCA spokesman told the BBC.
RSPCA Inspector Rachel Smith said she had to sneak up on the ewe, because it could still see over the top of the cone.
“I managed to grab the cone and she backed away from me so she popped right out,” Smith told London’s Evening Standard newspaper. “Although no harm came to this unfortunate sheep, on a serious note people should make sure all hazards are removed from areas that farm animals have access to.”
