May 24 (UPI) -- Police in Britain wrangled an escaped sheep found running loose on city streets, and a witness captured video of the animal head-butting an officer.

The Lancaster Police Dog Unit said officers taking their first call of the day were summoned to the city center to round up a loose sheep running across one-way roads.

British Transport Police Lancashire tweeted a video clip of the sheep head-butting a dog handler while evading capture.

Police said the sheep was eventually captured and the dog handler was not hurt in the "comedy moment."

"If you have lost a sheep it's safely in our custody and no sheep or dog handlers hurt during the process," police tweeted.
