Commando Sheep

Crafty sheep conquer cattle grids

The grids were installed 10 years ago after a gardener in Marsden, near Huddersfield, held stray sheep hostage.

Dorothy Lindley, an independent district councillor in the former textile town on the edge of the Pennine uplands in West Yorkshire, said: "They lie down on their side, or sometimes their back, and just roll over and over the grids until they are clear.

They eat plants, flowers and vegetables in gardens.

It is soul destroying

When you try to move them on they look at you as if to say it is their patch and you are not right in the head.
