The bodies of a dead sheep and a dead deer were today removed from Brayford Pool area of Lincoln, having both separately been found washed up in and around the quay.
Staff at the harbour were notified about the body of a deer in the morning after it was discovered by boats moored along the Brayford.
Then in the afternoon, they were slightly more alarmed when they were notified that a body of a dead sheep had found itself lodged in the glory hole embankment.
The staff used rope to drag the carcass of the sheep out of the water, in front of a gathering crowd.
Georgia Stillman, 20, watched on as the sheep was hoisted out of the water. “At first I thought they were pulling out a dead swan as it was by the area that the swans usually are but then I realised it had legs.”
