Howard of­fi­cers res­cue stray lamb from stream

Baltimore Sun - - NATION MARYLAND -

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.
