Born to be wild?
Yesterday (Sunday 22/04/2012) Carole had a call from a Councillor telling her about a sheep that had been running wild across gardens and allotments for several weeks and asked Carole if she could help.
This was all happening about 20 miles away from Woolly Park.
Going to be shot
Apparently this Councillor had asked the RSPCA, DEFRA and Trading Standards to come and catch this wild sheep but nothing had been done,
if the sheep wasn't caught he was going to be shot. Carole said she would take the sheep but would need some help to catch him.
To cut a very long story short, a kindly farmer managed to corner the sheep and Carole's neighbour who had a trailer went and picked him up.
He is a Hebridian type of sheep with big horns and is an entire ram so he will have to have an op.
He is very athletic and can jump very high so he is being kept in a secure pen until after his visit to the vet. He is extremely nervous at the moment having been chased around for weeks but is slowly settling in to his new surroundings.
This jumpy new arrival has been named Gilbert.
