    Police in Northern California spend several hours searching for a sheep that escaped Monday night from a yard in Fremont.

    The sheep led Fremont police officers on a chase and evaded capture until Tuesday afternoon when it was found at the Fremont Fire Training Center on Stevenson Boulevard and Blacow Road.

    Officers posted a video of the animal merrily munching on grass at the Tri-City Animal Shelter.

    Police tracked down the wayward sheep’s owner and reunited them.

    In a case of mistaken identity, Fremont police first said they had found a goat.

    They acknowledged the flub with a amended tweet and hashtag.
