Scott County Sheriff's Deputy Doubles as a "Sheep Herder"

Scott County-On April 11th, Deputy Skylar Thompson was dispatched to Interstate 65 in northern Scott County for a farm animal on the interstate.  Deputy Thompson located what he recognized as a "sheep trying to hitch-hike on the interstate", which is illegal in Indiana! Deputy Thompson has a reputation as a top notch lasso cowboy and within minutes, he was able to lasso the sheep and remove it safely from the interstate.  Sheriff Goodin stated the following..."I am amazed by the many talents of the Deputies at the Scott County Sheriff's Office.  Deputy Thompson has used his cowboy skills on more than one occasion, possibly averting serious situations with his lasso...all kidding aside, I am proud of his "can-do attitude" anytime he is called to action".  In the end, the sheep was transported to a local farm where it will remain until the owner is was not incarcerated at the Scott County Jail!
