“Leave them alone and they’ll come home, wagging their tails behind them.” In a matter of hours, Apex police reunited a lost sheep with its rightful owner Wednesday.
“This little guy is roaming around near Beaver Creek,” the Apex Police Department wrote on its Facebook page, attaching a photo of the sheep standing near a “No Trespassing: Town of Apex Utility Easement” sign.
The post was shared more than 100 times and had more than 200 reactions in about two hours, with several people volunteering to adopt the sheep or making sheep-themed jokes.
But later Wednesday night, police updated their Facebook and Twitter accounts to say they had found the sheep’s owner.
