Een schaap op zijn rug? A Dutch article on what to do when you find a sheep lying on its back. They unfortunately don’t have an English translation, but the comic explains it well. It is important to realise that sheep are not supposed to be on their backs and can actually die because of it, and to never roll them over their side: always go for the “grab them by the shoulders from behind, get them into a sitting position, then push them onto their feet”, as rolling them over can lead to a gastric torsion, which will kill them. Pass it on, save a life!
