2006_07_sheep.jpgStrange finding in Central Park's sheep meadow: An actual sheep, with its legs bound, was left there, only to be found on Tuesday night. The sheep is now at a farm in Connecticut (why not the Queenty County Farm?) and am New York says that the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals transported other farm animals on behalf of Animal Care & Control, including roosters and chickens (yes, it seems that annoying neighborhood roosters are sent away, not killed).

No one knows how the sheep got there. Gothamist can only imagine a tied-up sheep left in the Sheep Meadow was either an art project or a crazy pre-WiFi-ing of Central Park ritual we don't really want to know about.
