"When packaged, the casualty was evacuated by stretcher to track access and a team vehicle.

 

"After a short transfer to road access, the casualty was handed over to the Northern Ireland Ambulance Service for further treatment and the onward journey to Hospital.

 

"For information, we believe the sheep was uninjured and left the area unaided."

A number of social media users saw the funny side to the bizarre incident, while wishing the youngster a speedy recovery.

 

David Flanagan posted: "What is the natural world coming to? Pigs might fly, a cow was seen to jump over the moon and now a base-jumping sheep. Hope the guy that got in the way of its antics makes a full and quick recovery."

 

Dave Dickson wrote: "Well done MMRT. I’ll be up there in September. We’ll watch out for flying sheep!"
