MILL SPRING—The Polk County Animal Control got an unusual call last week to help rescue a sheep. 

CooperRiis, in Mill Spring, said little Agnes, one of their newest sheep, decided to investigate a storm drain and got stuck inside. The entire CooperRiis community came to her rescue along with animal control, Jones Lawn Services & Landscaping and the Polk County Sheriff. 

Heavy equipment had to be called in with Bryson Jones digging up the storm drain to rescue the animal. 

Agnes was found safe and sound and is doing well.
