Sheep's daring escape

A sheep has been spared the slaughterhouse after a daring James Bond-style escape from a Welsh farm.

Myfanwy the ewe leapt into a lake and swam nearly 100ft to a small island where she survived on daffodils.

She made her bid for freedom as her owner tried to round her up to take her to market and on to an abbatoir.

Myfanwy spent six weeks on the island before farmer Philip Robinson, from Nannerch near Mold, managed to bring her back.

He has now decided to adopt her as the farm pet, reports the BBC.

Mr Robinson said: "I left her for six weeks because we were busy with lambing and I took a boat over the island.

"When I tried to reach her, it was difficult... she ended up trying to swim back again."
