"Four men, 10 sheep and one very small car. It’s not the start of a joke. It’s what police in New Zealand found Wednesday when a routine patrol turned decidedly woolly.
An officer was driving along about 1 a.m. local time Wednesday in Havelock North when he noticed something odd about a 1994 Ford Laser hatchback as it labored along under the power of its 1.3-liter engine, Wellington police spokesman Guy Callahan said.
“He would have done a double take and said, ‘What the hell?’” Callahan said. “The officer basically pulled the vehicle over and discovered it was full up with men and sheep. … It’s quite a small vehicle.”

The 10 hog-tied sheep had allegedly just been stolen from a farm. Three of the men were charged with theft of stock and cruel treatment of an animal."
