Some kids caught a ewe that had gotten loose from a nearby farm. (Must be a sheep witness protection program, because I didn’t even know it was there.) I retrieved a dog leash from my trunk and kept the animal quiet until the owners arrived. There were some strange looks from passing motorists.
I had seen a coyote earlier in my shift. There was a strong possibility the nervous sheep had been chased by a pack of our local predators.
I have had dogs, cats, gators, horses, cows, monkeys, snakes, turtles, bats, and seagulls in custody, but never a sheep.
You never know what will happen when you go to work…
