Lucky Lady cheated death by escaping from an auction house and roaming the streets of New York City for hours. The 65-pound lamb was eventually caught by police and taken to Animal Care & Control. Farm Sanctuary was contacted and they agreed to take in the months-old lamb. She arrived at their bucolic New York Shelter a few days later; a far cry from the bustling city and its many slaughterhouses.
Lucky Lady recovered from her ordeal and will spend the rest of her days enjoying a spacious pasture, warm barn and the company of friends.
