More than 100 sheep and goats gave police a run for their money Tuesday night after escaping from a slaughterhouse in Lackawanna, New York.

Unfortunately, rather than trotting off to greener pastures, employees and officers spent the night rounding up the escapees and corralling them back to the plant.

The owner isn’t sure how the animals got out, but says he’s checking the latches on all the fence gates.

Let’s just hope this act of sheep bravery inspires a Disney movie with a much happier ending. Video of the nighttime escape after the jump:

    They can name the movie “Back Sheep! Back” or “Pulling the wool over your pastures”.
