Sheep man is baa-rred from buses


A MAN out walk­ing his PET SHEEP was booted off a train and a bus be­fore be­ing forced to walk more than six miles home with his fluffy pet in tow.

The grey-haired man was spot­ted try­ing to board a train in Wim­ble­don, south Lon­don, on Mon­day morn­ing be­fore be­ing told that livestock weren’t al­lowed on trains by a sta­tion guard.

He then walked four miles to New Malden, lead­ing his sheep, be­fore try­ing to board a bus to Kingstonupon-Thames.

Again, how­ever, he was told that sheep weren’t al­lowed on buses and walked off mut­ter­ing that he would have to “walk home”.

Lo­cals watched in as­ton­ish­ment as the man walked with his pet sheep – com­plete with black coat to keep it cosy – through the south Lon­don streets.

Naomi Mary Smith, who took pho­tos of the man wait­ing to get on a bus in New Malden, said: “He ended up walk­ing six miles odd with his sheep.”
