Four men in New Zealand are in sheep trouble.

Police noticed a speeding car without proper license plates in Queenstown, New Zealand. An attempt to pull the vehicle over resulted in a long pursuit of four suspects across a highway.

After a 90-minute chase, just when things started to seem hopeless, a mob of fluffy heroes stepped in.

More than 150 sheep were blocking the road, which is what helped the cops catch their guys.<

"The farmer herding them just kept doing his job as if nothing had happened and the sheep weren't worried by the fuss at all," journalist Che Baker told The Guardian. "They carried on normally and weren't aware they had become duty police that morning."

"I started taking pictures right away but it was so hilarious, it was so funny, I couldn't help laughing," Baker said.

No one — human or lamb — was injured in the incident.

Thanks to New Zealand's sheep for protecting local kiwis from baaaaaad guys.
