Gardaí in Dublin stumbled across a rather sheepish character while walking their bleat beat last night. 

The Gardaí were in Oliver Bond flats near the south of the inner city last night when they came across a sheep in the complex. Although he hadn't committed a crime, they did put him in the patrol car and took him back to Kevin Street station, where he spent the night. 

The Dublin Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals were called in and the animal has since been taken to their facility where it will be looked after and taken care of.  Bizarrely they said this was the fourth sheep they had had to pickup from Kevin Street Garda Station.
