A wayward lamb running around a New York City bridge briefly held up traffic before its rescue.
The animal was first seen trotting eastbound along the shoulder of Gowanus Expressway around 09:30 on Wednesday. New York City Police Officer Dominick Gatto says he was on-duty when a motorist informed him about the lamb on the lam.
Gatto and other police officers chased down and caught the animal, taking it to the Animal Care Centre in Staten Island.
Animal Care Centre employee Jessica Vaccaro says the lamb is young, probably less than a year old.
