David Cameron rescues drowning sheep

A sheep in Oxfordshire, England, owes its life to British Prime Minister David Cameron.
Bogged down by a stagnating economy and sinking poll ratings, Cameron became the hero of the hour recently when he pulled a sheep from waist-deep mud while on his way back from visiting a farmer near his weekend home, Reuters reported.
Cameron spotted the sheep from the road and waded into the mucky swamp with two of his bodyguards.
The ewe had apparently followed her two lambs into the mud.
"When I got there, David (Cameron) was in the swamp, waist-deep in mud, along with the two police, who had all gone in there to help drag this sheep out," farmer Julian Tustian told the Daily Telegraph.
"He was brilliant, pulling, pushing and shoving. He was covered in mud, he looked a mess."
The ewe, now nicknamed Swampy, made a full recovery following the ordeal. Her two lambs drowned, according to The Sun.
