The sheep were placed on the A27 road junction at Shoreham by West Sussex county council. 

The sheep are part of a sponsorship deal promoting the south downs National Park.  Apparently, local residents initially did not know who put the sheep there and the local paper even ran a story asking people with information to come forward!

The six sheep, which have been painted green, are so life like that shocked motorists complained they had to brake sharply, believing they had escaped from nearby fields.  Did they not notice they were green? 

Perhaps people thought they were alien sheep!

Further complaints have now forced the council to pen them off, however the barriers are brightly coloured and more complaints have been received advising that the colour of the barriers draws your attention to them and their contents. 

The council, it appears, cannot win! Some residents are horrified the sheep have been penned and are considering a "Free the Sheep" campaign!
