Authorities have found a sheep on the loose at a park in Chicago.

I'm not sure what's going on in the Windy City this summer. Seems like somebody left the barn door open. There have been a few issues with animals running loose in parks including an alligator, wild turkey, pigs, and now a sheep. Rather unusual.

According to,

"An elusive sheep seemed to be playing in McKinley Park as officials worked to capture the loose animal. Now dubbed McKinley, the adult female sheep is believed to have likely gotten loose during transport from a farm to animal processing facilities on the city's southwest side."

The animal was caught by police and taken to a sanctuary.
