A sheep wearing a festive red-and-green sweater was found wandering around Omaha over the weekend.

The Nebraska Humane Society is caring for the sheep while it tries to find its owner and learn the animal's name. The sheep was found Sunday evening in an Omaha neighborhood.

Humane Society spokeswoman Pam Wiese says the sheep will be held for at least three days before being put up for adoption. The animal appears healthy, and Wiese says it may have been a pet or someone's 4-H project.

The sheep is used to walking on a leash and doesn't seem to mind that the holiday apparel it donned appears to have been designed for a dog.

Wiese says the sheep has a thick coat, so it likely didn't need the sweater for warmth.
