(CBS/AP) LONDON - The first thing you need to know is...we did not make this up.
In southwest England, there is a village named Wool. In this village named Wool, thieves recently stole 160 sheep.
Police are asking for help in tracking down the stolen Wool-y sheep.
Authorities say the sheep were stolen between Saturday and Monday, and that the thieves would have needed a large vehicle to pull it off.
Constable Adam Taylor says all of the sheep were electronically tagged.
He is urging anyone who has witnessed suspicious activity - or been offered sheep "in unusual circumstances or for very low prices" - to come forward.
