Loose sheep evades capture in Illinois city


A sheep has been on the loose in Illinois town for at least five days and has evaded capture, despite multiple sightings.

Bloomington residents have captured photos and videos of the sheep since it was first spotted Monday.

Some witnesses said they reported the sightings to animal control, but the sheep still was on the loose Thursday, when it was spotted near the Miller Park Zoo.

The sheep’s origins are currently unknown, but some locals think it may be related to a Sept. 19 crash on Interstate 55 that temporarily released multiple sheep and goats into the roadway.
