The group attempted to pull the shivering sheep out, but the hole was six feet deep, and the poor sheep had little strength left. The family contacted the RSPCA in hopes that they could help. An officer arrived on the scene, and the Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes Fire and Rescue Service were also called to save the struggling sheep.
"People traditionally think that fire and rescue services only become involved in animal rescues when cats are stuck up trees," station commander Nick Honor said in a press release. "The reality, however, is very different."
The rescue team was finally able to pull the frightened sheep out and, miraculously, she had suffered few injuries.
