The DSPCA has taken custody of the sheep found in a block of Dublin flats

The inner city interloper was found in Oliver Bond Street flats, near Thomas Street.

SO… GARDAÍ CAME across this poor sheep in one of the most built-up areas of Dublin city last night.

The animal was found in Oliver Bond Street flats, near Thomas Street.

Gardaí confirmed on Twitter this morning that the sheep had been taken to Kevin Street Garda Station for minding.

And the DSPCA sent us an email later to confirm it had now taken custody of the inner-city interloper – after a request from officers.

“She is from the Oliver Bond Flats so we have named her Special Agent Olivia Bond, Licenced to lamb,” Gillian Bird, who looks after press for the DSPCA, said in the message.


ARAN, the animal rights campaign group, said they planned to present gardaí at Kevin Street with a ’Compassionate Action Award’.
