FIREFIGHTERS IN NORTHERN Ireland ended up downloading an app with sheep noises to rescue a lamb that was stuck in a drain.The Fintona firefighters first attempted to lure out the two-week-old lamb by making sheep impressions before turning to technology.The lamb had managed to find its way into a manhole and then several metres down a narrow horizontal pipe which was several feet underground.It turned around and came back up the pipe with the noise of the app, but not far enough to grab it.A local sheep farmer saved the day by providing a trained sheep dog, which went up the pipe and retrieved the lamb and brought it to safety.A Northern Ireland Fire & Rescue Service (NIFRS) have posted about the task on social media saying, “When we’re round the tea table it’s the ones like these we tend to talk about.” Short URL Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Friday 17 Feb 2017, 11:10 PM 2 week old lamb rescued from drain in Fintona ##NotABAAAAdDaysWork #FarmSAFE #StopandThinkSAFE #Animalrescue— NIFRS (@NIFRSOFFICIAL) February 17, 2017last_img read more
