Flock of sheep reports to EE Police Station!

Hearing it from the horse's mouth! This horse made its way to the East End Police Station one night in November 2015 and passersby did not hesitate to whip out their phones to snap a shot of the hilarious moment and post it to Facebook. Photo: Provided

EAST END, Tortola, VI- It seems the East End Police Station on the island of Tortola is now the centre for animals to make reports as following a story we did in November 2015 about a horse photographed visiting the station one night, a flock of sheep has since visited the facility.

The sheep at the station were caught on camera and, like the photo of the horse, the photograph is being shared by hundreds of Facebook users who have found it quite hilarious.

Facebook users have been making several comments, including that maybe the sheep are protesting animal cruelty as maybe they too are being affected by the water shortage gripping some parts of Tortola.

Another suggestion is that they are showing solidarity for race horses and the urgent need to fix the running surface at Ellis Thomas Downs since horses breaking their legs are becoming too common.

We still await a press release from Police Information Officer Diane Drayton on what that report was about and what was heard from the ‘horse’s mouth’ back in November 2015.

    A little levity is healthy for the psyche. The sheep are probably hired to provide landscaping for the police station free of charge or just a for a meal.

    nothing funny about this story at all. It shows how nasty, careless and unkept the area is. Tie up or fence your animals and clean around the area/roadway. That's the first village visitors see when they arrive in the country and believe me it is ridiculous!

    It is a pity animals cannot talk; maybe the sheep were trying to make a report of animal neglect or to share information on the unsolved murders in that neck of the wood since sensible human beings are not coming forward with information!
