Briarcrest condos

Stopped. Watched. icon

A runaway sheep gamboling through the condo complex. Perhaps an escapee from a nearby live nativity scene? In hot pursuit, a man yelling “Sheep Loose!”

    I also have a quibble … with the phrasal choice of the chaser, “Sheep loose!” I wish he would have managed the pun: “Stop, Sheep!” But in crisis situations, wordplay is likely not one’s first priority.

    I am kind of fond of the phrase “Sheep loose!” but am also still yearning for the video.

    Unless ewe come up with that video, I’ll have to presume someone’s spinning a yarn. ;-}

    Did they ever catch the sheep or is it still on the lamb?

    One of the stranger events of the last year was when someone saw a *wild boar* in my neighborhood (in tame suburban Scio right across from the Auto Mall).

    We had a monkey in our neighborhood a few years ago. Some student moved out and left the monkey to fend for itself. Shocked the heck out of my neighbor to see a monkey hanging from her backyard tree! Apparently the Humane Society gets an influx of exotic pets during UM move out.
