Likely bound for slaughter, this poor sheep saw an opportunity for freedom and made a break for it. But her escape was derailed when she was captured inside a Detroit auto shop.
The frantic creature ran around the shop, knocking things over, and tried to escape through a window made of safety glass. Employees eventually corralled the sheep, tied her up and gave her food and water, according to the Detroit Free Press.
According to WJBK-TV, animal control will hold onto the sheep until an owner is tracked down.
The Associated Press reports police said it was tagged and branded, showing it had been sold to a butcher or slaughterhouse.
Employees were told the sheep escaped from a truck, according to the Detroit News.
“It went so long trying to get away from being slaughtered,” owner Eugene Oleszko told the Free Press. “They should just give him to a petting zoo.”
