A flock of sheep caused disruption to motorists travelling in the north-east after escaping from their field.
The animals had made their way onto the B9170 near Meldrum House Hotel.
That forced drivers to take evasive action – although it is not known whether anyone had to make a ewe-turn.
Reports suggested the sheep had escaped yesterday evening.
Police were eventually alerted this morning, and officers have now returned the creatures to their field.
A police spokesman said: “We received a report at 7.50am of sheep on the B9170.
“They are now safely back in their field.”
