There's never a dull moment in South Jersey. That's certainly true in the summer with the hustle and bustle of all the tourists at the beach towns, but I'm referring to the entire year. Seriously... any resident will tell you that there's always SOMETHING crazy going on in this part of the state.

Today, that takes us to Lower Township in Cape May County. Usually, police officers are busy chasing after criminals, right? Either trying to get the bad guy or they're busy keeping our backroads and highways safe. Regardless of what they're doing, we're always grateful for their service.

Sheep on the loose in South Jersey

There's never a lack of entertainment when it comes to being a member of any one of South Jersey's police forces. That's certainly true for the officers in Lower Township. They had quite an interesting call on the morning of April 9th.

You may remember the legendary brown cow, Mootilda, from Marmora in Atlantic County from a few years ago. Well, it seems South Jersey is never without farm animals escaping and causing a raucous.

It was shared on Facebook on Tuesday, April 9th, that Lower Township police had to be called to the scene of debauchery on Breakwater Road. Sheep had escaped! Not one, but a total of 6! There are so many ways that this incident could have ended badly.

Luckily, we're happy to say that the officers from Squad 3 in Lower Township were able to rescue each and every one. They were all returned back to where they came from, each one safe and sound. No injury reports today.

Great news for both the sheep owners AND the officers.

Way to go, Lower Township PD!

It's hard for some people to believe, but New Jersey really does have a lot of farms...
