‘Cone ewe’ believe it?

The RSPCA was called to a trapped sheep in Hertfordshire last weekend.

But when inspector Rachel Smith arrived she found a sheepish looking ewe with a traffic cone on her head in the middle of the field in Chorleywood, Rickmansworth.

Inspector Smith said: “She could see over the top of the cone so I had to crouch down and sneak up on her. I managed to grab the cone and she backed away from me so she popped right out.

“Although no harm came to this unfortunate sheep, on a serious note people should make sure all hazards are removed from areas that farm animals have access to.”
