Sherwood police in hot pursuit... of sheep

SHERWOOD, (AP) — Police in Sherwood chased six runaway sheep on foot and in patrol cars after the animals escaped from the back of a trailer.

The Oregonian reports that Sherwood police Capt. Ty Hanlon says the sheep were first spotted Monday morning near a Safeway store close to Roy Rogers Road.

Off they went — to an ice arena, back to Safeway, across a highway and through a shopping center. Eventually they split up, four going into a neighborhood, two headed toward another grocery store.

Officers managed to round them up within about a half hour and loaded them back into the trailer.

Hanlon says the sheep had some close calls when they crossed streets and a busy highway but all survived unhurt.

Sherwood is southwest of Portland.
