Owner reclaims sheep wearing holiday sweater

A sheep wearing a festive red-and-green sweater who was found wandering around Omaha has been reunited with his owner.

Owner Margaret Vazquez tells a local television news station that she initially panicked when the sheep named Gage went missing. She says the sheep "follows me everywhere."

Nebraska Humane Society spokeswoman Pam Wiese says the sheep was reclaimed Tuesday evening. The Humane Society was caring for Gage after he was found Sunday evening in an Omaha neighborhood.

Gage shares a shed with two chickens, when he isn't in his owner's house. Gage is used to walking on a leash and doesn't seem to mind that the holiday apparel he donned appears to have been designed for a dog.

Vazquez says it was the first time Gage has escaped and now will spend more time indoors.
