Sheriff's Office seeks owner of abandoned ram
The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office is looking for additional information after rescuing a ram, which was found tied to a fence in the 27000 Southeast Highway 212 in Boring.
Deputies were called to the location Sunday afternoon, April 15, after being notified of a possible abandoned animal. They identified the animal as a hair sheep ram and realized it was without food or shelter. According to an announcement from the sheriff's office, "The ram was lying on its side, shivering, surrounded by feces, with its right front leg trapped in a small shrub and its horns entangled in a wire fence."
The ram was wearing an ear tag with the serial number OR03549 0003.
Deputies called in a veterinarian after finding the animal was incapacitated. The veterinarian provided immediate medical care and took the ram to stay temporarily at the Eagle Fern Equine Hospital. The ram is now in foster care, and the sheriff's office is investigating the incident as an animal-neglect case.
Anyone with further information or associated with the ram's owner are asked to contact the Sheriff's Office Tip Line by calling 503-723-4949 or by using the online form at web3.clackamas.us/contact/tip.jsp, referencing CCSO Case No. 18-011169.
