Recently, someone noticed a baby sheep stuck on a cliff in the North Tolsta cliffs on the Isle of Lewis in Scotland. Thankfully, they reached out for help and the Scottish SPCA came to the rescue. It turned out that the baby sheep was stuck up there because her front legs were injured climbing. The sheep’s mother was nearby and able to climb back up but refused to leave her baby alone.

The SPCA reached out to Hebrides Mountain Rescue Team who came to help and together, they were able to reach the baby sheep and safely get her down from there.

The baby sheep was taken to the vet but would be reunited with her mom after it was guaranteed that she was okay.

This impressive rescue mission was also carried out while maintaining social distance and with minimal personnel.
