Thankfully, this sheep is safe!
The ewe was stuck in a bed of weeds along a river bank in England when passer-by Jason Finch saw the endangered sheep.
RSPCA was called and Finch tried to rescue the sheep, but it was too heavy due to its water-logged coat. The sheep had given up hope and only her head was above water.
Finch called the fire department and the ewe was rescued after the fire fighters pulled her to safety with a rope.
She was set free and Finch thanked the fire fighters for their support, stating:
This poor girl would have died from exhaustion and exposure had we not got her out when we did. The water is freezing and she was shaking violently. I am just really pleased to have been able to rescue her.
A happy ever after! The sheep gets to go home!
