After leaping across a gap from a neighbouring field, five sheep had to be rescued from a rooftop in West Yorkshire. On Tuesday, firefighters were dispatched to Barnsley Road in Newmillerdam, near Wakefield, when the animals became stranded.
Mr Cameron, a technical rescue officer, and a nearby farmer built a makeshift bridge to assist the sheep in getting to safety. According to West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue, one woolly jumper plunged into the void, followed by the others.
Posting the news to Twitter they wrote: “Ph-ewe – this was a close shave!
“Our Tech Rescue Officer’s specialist animal husbandry training came in handy when he rescued these sheep from a roof after they’d leapt onto it from a neighbouring field.
“Baaa-rmy behaviour! #MoreThanJustFires“
We do love a good pun. Locals were quick to share their own on the post with one person writing: “That’s what I call a woolly jumper!”
Another person wrote: “Sheep really do love a bit of parkour.”
