Little Bo Peep can call off her search.
It’s not every day you see a sheep roaming free in a city with nearly half a million people. It’s even rarer — unprecedented, really — to see one dressed in an ugly Christmas sweater. But that’s exactly what Omaha animal control came across this weekend, and now the animal is all dressed up with nowhere to go but the Nebraska Humane Society.
The Humane Society is hoping to find the sheep’s owner via Facebook, where the organization announced, “If you’re missing a sheep that enjoys wearing Christmas sweaters he’s here at NHS.” The message seems to indicate that if no owner steps forward, the sheep might become available for adoption. Here’s hoping he’ll make it home for the holidays.
