Lifeboat crew save a stranded sheep.

This evening the crew of Baltimore Inshore RNLI Lifeboat ‘Bessie’ carried out an unusual rescue. A sheep belonging to a local farmer had been trapped on a ledge close to sea level, several attempts over the two previous days had failed to reach the sheep. After consultation with station personnel it was decided that once there was a break in the bad weather that the lifeboat would make an attempt to reach the stranded sheep. At 7.30pm Baltimore’s Inshore Lifeboat launched under helm Youen Jacob and crewed by Ronan Callanan and Tadhg Collins, and after two days on the ledge the sheep was brought safely to shore.
