Wayward ram reunited with owner

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC-TV) - A ram found near a Memphis intersection has been reunited with his owner.

Memphis Animal Services had been trying to find the owner of the Hampshire Ram for several weeks.  The animal was found near Chelsea and Breedlove, a block from the I-240 interstate.

Memphis Animal Services Director Matthew Pepper said the owner came forward after Action News 5 originally reported on the ram.

"The owner found it after seeing it on TV," said Pepper.  "He lost it transporting it.  He was flagged down and said that he was flagged down because his back gate was open."

Pepper said the owner was able to prove the ram was his and was very happy to have the animal back.
