Sheep in bed a bit of a yarn

`Senior Constable Ian Henderson said the 19-year-old man sounded rather traumatised when he contacted police at 2.21am on Wednesday.

“He said he had woken up to find a sheep sleeping in his bed and he was sure it was pregnant.”

Police did not ask how the young man came to that conclusion. [..]

However, when he checked on her the next morning, it appeared his bed mate had hoofed it some time during the night and she was no where to be found.

A scene check by police later that morning failed to find any trace of the sheep. “There certainly wasn’t any dags, wool or hoof marks in the bed.” [..]

The man has admitted being very intoxicated that night.’
