Now here is something one does not see every day, especially in Brooklyn, New York. On Thursday, a sheep was found mysteriously tied to a tree, sporting matted locks due to the rainy weather. New York Police Department cops rescued the animal after someone spotted it in Coney Island Creek Park a little before 10 p.m. and contacted authorities.

According to NBC, animal control poles were used to guide the sheep into a truck, where it was then taken to the New York City Animal Control Center. It remains unclear how the sheep ended up being tied up. 

This is not the first time a farm animal has been found where it shouldn't be in New York. Similar instances took place two other times this month.

On March 19, a cow escaped from a slaughterhouse and ran onto a busy road near 166th Street. It had to be tranquilized as it acted aggressively before being taken to Animal Care Centers of New York.

Six days prior, a little lamb thought to be no older than 3 months was seen running on the Gowanus Expressway during the morning rush hour. NBC reports the animal ended up being rescued by an off-duty U.S. Customs and Border Protection officer alongside the NYPD.
