A pair of sheep have been found wandering 150 miles from their home in Scotland, STV reported.
The ewe and her lamb were discovered at Aberdeen Science and Energy Park on Monday - but their home is a farm around 150 miles away on the other side of the country, on Raasay near the Isle of Skye.
Scottish SPCA animal rescue officer, Lynne Craib, said: “They were oddly found wandering around an industrial area with no sheep fields close by."
Annabelle and Charlie are now in the care of the Scottish SCPA’s Aberdeenshire Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre in Drumoak.
