DETROIT (AP) — A sheep that made a surprise visit to a Detroit auto collision shop is getting a new home at a Michigan animal sanctuary.
The animal showed up at Nortown Collision & Glass Co. on the city's east side on Tuesday, darting through an open door and running around for about 20 minutes before workers corralled the animal. The sheep, which may have been destined for slaughter, was OK.
The Detroit Free Press and The Detroit News report it was taken Wednesday to a Michigan Humane Society facility. Group spokesman Ryan McTigue says the sheep will be "living the good life" at the Sanctuary And Safe Haven for Animals Farm in Manchester.
Detroit Police Sgt. Michael Woody says: "He got away. He deserves his life."
