Over-Turned Sheep Trailer in Boulder City

Oh, it’s so sad! A livestock trailer carrying approximately 250 sheep flipped over yesterday afternoon on the southbound ramp onto U.S. 95 at the split with U.S. 93 (you know, the road out to Searchlight) and trapping the sheep inside.

Although Boulder City’s Animal Shelter staff was off-duty yesterday, all three of them came out to help the rescue efforts (naturally!) and promptly sent out a call for help to anyone with a truck and trailer. We understand that the community’s response was overwhelming, especially from folks up at the corrals. Some brought horses to help herd and catch the 6 sheep that escaped and were running on the highway.

Clark County Animal Control came to help and the fire department cut a hole in the trailer so that they could extract every sheep onto waiting rescue trailers. Sadly, BC Animal Control reports that 74 sheep didn’t survive (not 22, as first reported in news broadcasts yesterday), but they were glad they were able to rescue as many as they did.

And here’s what is happening at this very moment (Tuesday morning, Nov. 10th)… this little straggler was spotted in the desert and so Boulder City Animal Control is back out there awaiting the arrival of men on horseback with lassos to do some wrangling!

Hats OFF to everyone who rushed in to help with this tragedy and kept it from turning out so much worse!
