A sheep stuck for several days on a mountain ledge in Snowdonia, Wales, has been rescued by RSPCA inspectors.
It was spotted on the side of Tryfan mountain and was unable to move out of danger, said a spokesman.
Staff using ropes lowered themselves 100m (328ft) on to the ledge to rescue the animal despite difficult weather conditions.
It was caught and put in a sack to enable it to be taken to safety.
Inspector Mike Pugh said: "Once released from the bag the sheep was so hungry he just stayed nearby feeding, while we sorted out all the ropes and equipment."
