Sheep found outside Bridgeport zoo entrance

Zookeepers found a sheep wandering outside Bridgeport?s Beardsley Zoo entrance Friday morning.

Zookeepers say the sheep was stressed but seems healthy overall. They say they cannot put her with the other sheep because of her advanced age.

The sheep will be kept in a cage until they can find her a new home.

Zookeepers do not know where she came from or who dropped her off. They hope the tags in her ears can be traced to an owner.
