What an....interesting problem to have. 

Yep, this one guy had a whole flock of sheep in his backyard this past week.

This happened in Lincoln, California, near Sacramento.  A guy shot cell phone video of a flock of sheep that came through an open gate and invaded his backyard.  He spends about two minutes trying to clear them out, but he's not having much luck.

Then his wife starts shaking their kid's tambourine and that does the trick. Now, you may ask, why are flocks of sheep roaming around around a suburb in California?  The sheep are in the area because the city uses them to clear away vegetation and reduce fire hazards.

It sounds kinda like a good idea, but then I've never had two hundred sheep in my backyard.  I guess he'll learn not to shut that gate again.

Sheepishly yours,
