(Scroll down for video) A curious sheep got itself into trouble after trying to look into a traffic cone, according to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) in the United Kingdom.

Inspector Rachel Smith of the RSPCA in Chorleywood, said that she responded to the scene of a sheep with a traffic cone stuck on it head.

The incident unfolded as someone left the traffic cone within reach of a herd of sheep. One of the sheep stuck its head into the orange traffic cone, but it was unable to pull it off.

When people tried to approach the sheep to get the traffic cone off its head, the animal quickly ran away. Smith was able to remove the cone by quietly crawling up on the sheep and grabbing the traffic cone.

When the sheep backed away, the traffic cone immediately came off. The RSPCA warned people not to leave dangerous objects near farm animals.
