Howard officers rescue stray lamb from stream
There was no blood at the scene of a police rescue Sunday in Columbia — but there was plenty of bleating. Howard County police responded to Eaglebeak Row in Columbia’s Long Reach neighborhood Sunday after passersby called to report a lamb trapped in a nearby stream, according to Lori Boone, a spokeswoman for the Howard County Police Department. Officers pulled a black lamb from the small stream and ushered it to safety, Boone said in an email. The lamb rescue wasn’t the only animal rescue over the weekend; Annapolis police saved a group of ducklings trapped on State Circle. The lamb was taken to the Howard County Animal Control & Adoption Center, where it is “safe and dry,” according to Boone. Now Howard County Police can get back to chasing the real baaad guys.
