Central Oregon law enforcement is looking for the owner of a sheep that was found wandering in a northeast Bend neighborhood Wednesday morning.
Bend Police initially identified the animal as a goat. It was spotted in the area of Watercress Way and Primrose Place around 8:04 a.m. Wednesday.
The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office took the animal into custody. After someone commented to Central Oregon Daily News that the animal appeared to be a sheep, DCSO confirmed it is actually a Barbados sheep.
The sheep is a female with a dark brown coat and black ears.
If this is your missing sheep, contact the Sheriff’s Office via the nonemergency dispatch line, 541-693-6911.
