Watch moment ABC Council fitness instructor rescues trapped ewe in the Mournes

This is the incredible moment an Armagh, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council fitness instructor rescued a sheep trapped in mud in the Mourne Mountains.

Lynne Troughton was out on a hike with a friend on Slievemoughanmore over the weekend when she spotted the stricken sheep.

And what would have been a task for a couple of people, Lynne rolled up her proverbial sleeves and jumped right in to free the tiring animal, which would have almost certainly died had it not been for her timely intervention.

The video was posted on the getactiveabc social media pages with the caption: “Watch until the end! There’s strength, and then there’s Lynn Troughton strength! 😮💪🤩 Who wouldn’t want this lady as their fitness advisor? 🏋️‍♀

“Just another weekend in the Mournes for Lynn ⛰️ and then….. This sheep is glad she came along no doubt about that 🐑🐑🐑

“Mind ewe, Lynn won’t be adding this to the getactiveabc fitness class timetable anytime soon 🏃😜 😍.”
