WHEN Graham McCole became a police officer he knew the job would involve an element of danger.
However, he never expected the danger to come in the form of over-protective sheep.
While the Cranbourne police officer was conducting inquiries at a house in Cranbourne South two weeks ago, he was confronted by an unwelcoming sheep called Dolly.
Dolly was not happy with the police presence at her home and proceeded to chase Sen Const McCole around the police car.
Fortunately his speed and agility enabled him to escape to the safe haven of his vehicle.
Sen Const McCole said Dolly walked proudly away while he made a ‘ewe’ turn and drove back to the station.
However that was not his last encounter of the woolly kind.
Last Wednesday, while visiting a house in Clyde, Sen Const McCole was confronted by an angry ram.
After speaking to the ram’s owner, Sen Const McCole was walking back to the police car when he turned to see the ram, head down, wool up charging straight for him.
Again he took off at a fast speed, with the ram in hot pursuit. He was chased around a tree by the rampaging ram until, with the assistance of the owner, he was again able to enter the safety of his police car.
"The only mistake I made was telling a few of the boys at the station," a sheepish Sen Const McCole said.
"I have been the butt of their jokes ever since."
