>>> this amazing rescue video. two sheep, that's right. two sheep trapped on a cliff on an island near iceland for days apparently. finally rescuers who were wearing cameras on their helmet, they make their way down the cliff and tie the sheep and then a lamb was a tad bit more difficult to catch.

>> didn't want to go?

>> apparently he was a bit suspicious of the rescuers so he tries to get away for a while. eventually, the rescuers were able to corner the lamb and the sheep and get them to safe. there is a joke in there somewhere.

>> two sheep walking into a bar?

>> but the lamb and the sheep are all fine this morning.
