POLICE zapped a runaway sheep that was blocking traffic with a Taser stun gun, a weapon issued for use in violent situations.
Motorists trapped in the traffic jam caused when the sheep got out of a field in north Wales in Britain were horrified to see the sheep stunned by police then carried to the side of the road where it continued to convulse, the Daily Mail reported.
"Some of the officers had to reload their guns while shooting the animals. "
GRAFTON -- Police were forced to shoot 15 cattle that came dangerously close to wandering onto Hwy. 401 yesterday.
Northumberland OPP Sgt. Paul Murray said police were called numerous times for the same herd getting loose from a farm for almost two months and wandering near the busy highway at Grafton, east of Cobourg.
Around 10 a.m. yesterday, the officers were forced to end it, killing the cows that escaped and were headed towards the eastbound lanes.

I do have one question though. How did it penetrate the sheep's wool? Their coats are incredibly thick. (Though, I suppose their winter coats haven't started coming in yet.)
