Bored of staying inside? These happy sheep are proof that lockdown isn’t all baa-d.
Hundreds of them have taken over a town in Turkey that’s deserted thanks to all its residents staying inside, and the videos are so great they’re guaranteed to cheer ewe (sorry) up.

The coastal city of Samsun is the latest place to discover that animals love lockdown. It recently welcomed hundreds of sheep to its usually-busy centre, and the people who spotted them were quick to share the strange sight on social media.

The flock ran riot in the quiet streets, baa-ing, grazing on grassy verges and making quite the racket with their clanging bells, before shepherds led them out of the city to a nearby mountainous area.

They basically had a big night out in the city. Remember what that was like?
