This mother sheep and her lamb were found roaming around an Aberdeen industrial estate – miles from the nearest fields – and now animal rescuers are trying to reunite them with their owners.
The Scottish SPCA was called on Monday after they were spotted by workers on the Aberdeen Science and Energy Park at Bridge of Don.
The pair are being cared for by staff at the charity’s Aberdeenshire animal rescue and rehoming centre at Drumoak, where they have been nicknamed Annabelle and Charlie.
Scottish SPCA Animal Rescue Officer, Lynne Craib, said, “Annabelle and Charlie were oddly found wandering around an industrial area with no sheep fields close by.
“There was a tag number on Annabelle, however the owner has not kept their details updated so this hasn’t helped us in tracing them.
“Police have contacted farmers within a five mile radius of where the two were found but so far no one has claimed them.
“It’s likely they haven’t travelled too far so we’re hoping someone will realise they are missing and come forward. If not we’ll find them both a new home.”
Anyone who recognises Annabelle and Charlie is being urged to contact the Scottish SPCA animal helpline on 03000 999 999.
