A Baa-d move...

When Ed and Paula Smith returned home after a pleasant walk in the country they were greeted by a scene of utter carnage.
An intruder had smashed their patio doors and gone on wrecking spree around their home causing at least £7,000 worth of damage.
As well as ruining carpets and walls in their £550,000 home, their range cooker had been smashed, their plasma television lay in ruins and several items of furniture were badly damaged.

The horned hoodlum had been mating with ewes in the field of a nearby farm when he managed to escape.
He got into the Smith’s garden where it spotted its own reflection in their patio doors.
Believing it to be another ram - a rival for the attentions of the ewes - it charged the doors and smashed its way into the house.

Despite the best efforts of the pursuing farmer and his wife, the ram could not be controlled.
