Hilarious footage shows a flock of sheep desperately chasing a passing dog – after apparently mistaking it for a lamb.
Lexi Wolfe had been out hillwalking in Brockhill Park, Kent, on Saturday when she heard a chorus of distressed bleating from flock of sheep in a nearby field.
Ms Wolfe, from Sheffield, Yorkshire, was left in stitches after realising that the sheep were chasing a small white dog in the apparent belief that it was a lamb that had been led astray.
Her video shows a long line of sheep walking after the dog as it nears the end of the field with its owner. They had earlier been resting in he shade of a tree.
A caption on the video reads: ‘When sheep think they’ve lost a lamb but they’ve not.’

Ms Wolfe says in the video: ‘So, what’s going on here is all these sheep have come out from under this tree – because it’s a boiling hot day – because off in the distance is this tiny dog that looks like a lamb.’
The sheep can be heard bleating as they approach the tiny white pooch, who is out on a walk with its unsuspecting owner.
The sheep continue to bleat louder as they anxiously call the dog back to the flock, believing it to be one of their own.
Ms Wolfe continues: ‘So all of these sheep are convinced that somebody’s walked off with a lamb.’
The camera zooms in closer again as Ms Wolfe asks viewers: ‘Do you see that? They reckon that’s a lamb and they’re literally bah-ing after it.’
As the sheep get closer, she adds: ‘They were dead silent a minute ago and now they’re pure like ‘Come back!”

Ms Wolfe shared her video on social media on Saturday.
One concerned commenter wrote: ‘No! And they are all worried.’
Another joked: ‘Step one, get a small white fluffy dog. Step two, steal an entire herd of sheep.’
A third commented: ‘They think they just witnessed a kidnapping.’
A fourth added: ‘No lamb left behind.’
Ms Wolfe said today: ‘So we were in Brockhill Park in Kent. The sheep had all been stationary under the large tree you see in the video about a minute beforehand.

‘Ahead of us is this tiny white fluffy toy poodle or terrier – not sure. They’ve walked on ahead, we go off to a higher path.
‘A minute later I heard all these sheep baa-ing loudly, whereas they’d been minding their woolly business beforehand, and a few had broken off, looking concerned towards this tiny white fluffy dog, and I realised what must have happened.
‘We passed by the sheep on higher ground about three minutes later and while they’d all moved, they had all found a new patch of grass to distract themselves.
‘So, I’m hoping no ewes [who’ve] lost a lamb earlier in the spring and thought it was theirs.’
