Sheep Push Woman Over Edge of Cliff

January 29, 1999|From Times Wire Reports

A flock of sheep charged a British farmer's wife bringing them food and pushed her over a cliff to her death. Betty Stobbs, 67, had taken a bale of hay on the back of a power bike to feed the animals grazing in a field overlooking a closed quarry. The sheep rushed forward and jumped onto the vehicle, knocking the bike and its rider over the edge of the quarry near Durham, northeast England. Stobbs died when the bike fell on her.
