A wether got one of his horns tangled into a wire, panicked, slipped and went flying down the wire and was left hanging 5-6 meters above the ground. Some german tourists saved the wether using a lasso. The wether was just fine after he was saved.

Here is a video of the rescue operation. It's in norwegian, but you'll see how he was saved, and that he was ok afterwards. Video here. I haven't been able to find it on Youtube yet.

They say the wether might have been on a romance mission when he performed this stunt. There were apparently a flock of ewes on the other side of the fence...

Heh, that's pretty funny. It's my new wallpaper now
When looking at the video, the animal looks a lot smaller than it does in the picture, though. The picture made me think I was looking at something a LOT bigger, but the video makes it clear it is small enough that people can pick it up.

Her henger væren i TV-kabelen etter hornene (in Norwegian)

After it was freed, it shook its head a couple of times and ran off.
