ST. PAUL, Minn. — At the Irish Fair of Minnesota in St. Paul on Saturday afternoon, six sheep escaped during a herding demonstration, bolting the ring, pushing through the crowd and running around Harriet Island.
A sheepdog dutifully followed and tried to restore order. After a brief chase, the dog -- with occasional assistance from surprised fairgoers -- returned the sheep to the demonstration area.
The Irish Fair, the nation's largest free celebration of Irish culture, began Friday and ends at 7 p.m. Sunday, according to the event's website.
