All-too-often, people who have no experience of policing other than watching ‘documentaries’ on TV will insist that the police are being ‘brutal’ when, in reality, they just, well, policing.
However, some sheep recently had to endure the full ‘force’ of so-called police brutality after they were held against their will having (we assume) staged a protest near to a main road.
A post on the @DerPolContact Police twitter page said:
“These baaararmy officers have just been herding sheep to stop them from making their way onto the A50!
“All of the sheep are safely back in the field.
“Unfortunately, the officers are having to have a quick shower and change before proceeding with their duties!
We understand that the Sheep in question have been contacted by a firm of solicitors who will ensure that the sheep are suitably compensated for their time spent in police custody.
The Sheer number of sheep will no-doubt lead to a large payout of compensation (paid for by the Taxpayer, rather than by the individual officers).

Before you go...
We need your help. As former emergency services & armed forces personnel, we pride ourselves on bringing you important, fast-moving and breaking news stories which are free from the negative bias which is often directed at the emergency services by some sections of the mainstream media.
One of the reasons we started 'Emergency Services News' was because we became tired of reading badly informed stories about the emergency services which seemed only ever to highlight negative aspects of the job.
We want to be the unheard voice of the remarkable men and women who serve in the emergency services, NHS and armed forces. And with around 500k page views each month, we are getting there!
As income from ads, the mainstay source of income for most publishers, continues to decline; we need the help of our readers.
And remember, if you have a service, product or job vacancy that you would like to promote to our large readership, then you can buy advertising space in our articles.
You can support emergency services news from as little as £1. It only takes a minute. Every contribution, however big or small, is vital for our future.
Please help us to continue to highlight the life-saving work of the emergency services, NHS and armed forces by becoming a supporter.
