Sheep baffles hotel staff after being spotted ‘waiting for lift’

·1-min read

A sheep stunned staff at a hotel in Wales after it was spotted apparently waiting for the hotel lift.

The sheep, nicknamed Sidney by workers at Premier Inn’s Holyhead hotel, was ushered back outside after it let itself in through the electric doors.

A video shows a staff member commenting “oh my god” after encountering the animal staring back at him.

“The team were rubbing their eyes when Sidney strolled in. It was a bit like a weird dream,” Linda Pritchard, duty manager of the hotel, said.

“Sidney’s quite been the talk of the town and no one in any of the Premier Inns across the UK has ever heard of anything like this before.

“It’s been lovely really, he’s really put a smile on people’s faces.”

Staff at the hotel said that Sidney had escaped from a nearby field, but is now back to his rightful place after the incident.
