Some devious thieves managed to steal 160 sheep between Monday and Tuesday from the town of Wool. Authorities aren’t entirely sure how they moved their baa-ing loot, but assume a large vehicle was needed.

Although the sheep are electronically tagged, constable Adam Taylor told inhabitants to keep tabs on anyone offering sheep “in unusual circumstances or for very low prices,” reports the AP.

Sheep thieving seems like a lot of trouble to go to, unless you were a very avid knitter, or a lover of Greek cuisine. Perhaps the thieves suffer from incurable insomnia. Whatever the motivation, there are some scared sheep, and angry sheperds, out there who need help being reunited.
