Helmet-Clad Lamb Becomes Internet Sensation, Delighting Onlookers on the Isle of Tiree

…By Larry John for TDPel Media. In an amusing incident on the Isle of Tiree, Scotland, a bewildered lamb was discovered wearing a motorcycle helmet perfectly fitted over its head.


Ettie MacDonald came across the four-week-old calf on May 9, initially believing it to be a sheep stuck in a feeding bucket.

However, upon closer inspection, he realized the lamb was sporting a black crash helmet with the visor positioned for road use.

Sheila MacKinnon, the owner, was initially skeptical when Ettie informed her of the situation but was convinced after receiving photos and a video of the sheep wearing the safety gear and wandering aimlessly in circles.

Some even made playful remarks, such as suggesting the sheep might ride a “LAMBretta” or participate in the “Isle of Lamb races.”
