A sheep wearing a festive red-and-green sweater who was found wandering around Omaha has been reunited with his owner. Nebraska Humane Society spokeswoman Pam Wiese says someone reclaimed the sheep, named Gage, last night. The Humane Society was caring for Gage after he was found Sunday evening in an Omaha neighborhood.

Gage shares a shed with two chickens, when he isn't in his owner's house, and Weise says the owner doesn't know how Gage got loose. The owner learned about his whereabouts from Facebook because of publicity surrounding the animal. Weise says the owner had several photos of Gage to prove he's her pet. Gage is used to walking on a leash and doesn't seem to mind that the holiday apparel he donned appears to have been designed for a dog. (More strange stuff stories.)
