Traffic in the UK’s second city Birmingham faced an unusual hazard when a sheep escaped. The perturbed animal, more used to country areas than a busy city, ran headlong into traffic in the city. A cyclist, a policeman, a motorcyclist and a number of pedestrians joined in the pursuit. The sheep ran across roads without waiting for traffic to pass by, resulting in several close calls. Eventually the terrified animal ran into a park, where it was cornered and captured by its curiously mixed posse of pursuers.
