After wandering into dangerous terrain at the start of December and getting stuck in Ófeigsfjörður, a flock of five sheep were saved through unconventional but amusing means, reports RÚV.
“No, this isn’t what you’d call traditional herding,” said Davíð Már Bjarnason, pictured above dragging a sheep behind him in a toboggan.
The area where the sheep got stuck is notorious and is often impassable. In fact, while the farmers might usually use a snow mobile to reach the sheep, icy conditions meant they trekked 8 kilometres and then carried, lead by a leash or dragged the sheep to safety in a toboggan.
“Everyone was very relieved to have reached the sheep,” said Davíð Már. “They hadn’t had much to eat.”
