A Marbella resident was left feeling a little sheepish when he was caught by the Guardia Civil taking a sheep for a walk through an urbanization in the town.

In addition to not having a valid reason for taking his sheep for a walk, the Guardia Civil found that the man did not have the necessary identification or health documents for the animal.

The man has since been denounced for administrative infractions of the animal health and protection regulations, and the case has been forwarded to the Territorial Delegation of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries of the Junta de Andalucía.
