Ewe couldn't make it up - watch as sheep springs through Edgbaston street

Footage has emerged of a sheep on the loose in Birmingham, dashing between cars driving along the road. The video was filmed by a local man who got on his bike and tried to round up the running animal before it caused a serious crash after it was spotted trotting along the bustling Pershore Road in Edgbaston on Saturday, much to the surprise of passing drivers. Police joined the chase before the animal then escaped into a park.

Earlier this month, motorists were startled when they came across a sheep running down the Stratford Road In Solihull. Drivers stopped to catch the sheep as it ran down the central reservation of the busy A34 and headed towards the junction of the M42.
