Roaming ram captured in downtown Des Moines
A thickly coated sheep has been captured after an hour of freedom in downtown Des Moines.
The Navajo-Churro ram jumped from a trailer near the Capitol on Friday morning and led police, Animal Rescue League officials and Capitol workers on a chase.
It finally was cornered and controlled near the power plant south of the Capitol.
Authorities say the ram was being taken from Creston to Cedar Rapids.
