Firefighters in Lower Austria were called out to an unusual rescue operation on Sunday afternoon - not a cat stuck in a tree, but a sheep stuck on the roof of a house.

A local resident noticed the animal on the roof in Langenlois and called the fire brigade. Volunteer firemen used a ladder to get to the roof and carry the sheep back down to the ground.  

Spokesman Christoph Firlinger said that the sheep reacted with “stoic composure” to being rescued.

The animal was not injured and it remains a mystery how it got onto the roof. It had escaped from its pasture and has now been returned to its owner.
