Ram On The Lam Eludes Handlers, Police

DES MOINES, Iowa (December 3, 2012)--A shaggy brown sheep eluded police, his handlers and dodged a few cars while trotting through downtown Des Moines after escaping from his trailer.

But the ram's freedom only lasted about an hour Friday before he was cornered and tackled by about a half dozen of his pursuers.

The Navajo-Churro ram jumped from a trailer Friday morning near the Iowa Capitol and led police, Animal Rescue League workers and some Capitol workers on a chase.

Authorities say the ram was being taken from Creston to Cedar Rapids when it made its escape.
