Did you hear the one about the RNLI lifeboatman and the ewe?

A lifeboatman and a submissive sheep… Avert your eyes.

Granted, it looks a bit strange and I’m sure there was a fair bit of banter at the lifeboat house when they uploaded this photo. The crew of Horton & Porteynon inshore lifeboat really did corner a ewe this weekend.

They were called out to help the fire service rescue a dog that had gone over a cliff. When they arrived the dog was being rescued and instead they found a sheep in a precarious position. So they saved that.

According to the RNLI the ewe took “much persuading”.

It doesn’t look too relieved here, right enough.
