POLICE stopped a driver for having two bald tyres – and found a sheep in the boot.
Driver stopped with live sheep in his car told police he was taking it to McDonalds
North Yorkshire Police Roads Policing Group posted a picture of the offending Peugeot 206 on Twitter, complete with the unusual passenger.
When questioned about why the sheep was in the car, the driver said he was taking it to MacDonalds for a takeaway.
A spokeswoman for North Yorkshire Police said: “He told the officer that ‘some people take their dogs in their cars, I take my sheep’.
“He just wanted to go for a drive-through at McDonald’s.”
It is believed the driver was stopped shortly after a visit to Leeming Bar services in North Yorkshire on Wednesday night.
