A driver caught with a sheep in the boot of his car told police he was taking the animal to McDonald’s for a takeaway.
Police stopped the driver in North Yorkshire, suspecting the car had two bald tyres, however, upon closer inspection officers realised there was a fully grown sheep in the boot of the vehicle.
Officers from the force have now taken to Twitter to reveal the unusual passenger.

When questioned about the fully grown sheep in his boot, the driver simply explained he had taken it to McDonald’s for a meal.
A police spokeswoman The Telegraph: “He told the officer, ‘some people take their dogs in their cars, I take my sheep’. He [the motorist] just wanted to go for a drive-through at McDonalds.”
