For Immediate Release
Sheep Destined for Slaughter on the Loose in Saline Neighborhood Is Rescued by Local Michigan Farm Animal Sanctuary-SASHA Farm.
Manchester, Michigan – July 4, 2014
On the early morning of June 21, 2014 SASHA Farm employees headed to a Saline neighborhood to help catch a sheep that had been tromping through everyone’s backyard for a couple weeks. After spending all morning chasing after her with the help of a few neighborhood residents she was caught and loaded into the SASHA Farm trailer.
Over a week ago SASHA Farm began receiving calls from the Humane Society and Saline residents reporting that a sheep was on the loose and attempts to catch her were unsuccessful. A family purchased the sheep to slaughter for meat and she was kept in their yard until she broke free. The sheep has tags on each ear and spray paint down her back, so she was clearly marked for slaughter. The family realized the sheep was causing problems by running loose through their neighbor’s yards. They asked us to help catch her but we only agreed if she was surrendered to us so we could see to it she was never slaughtered.
