Create A Green Roof and Grazing Animals Will Come and Want To Eat It

From Wales (England) comes this tail (sic) of a daring ewe that saw that the grass was greener on the roof…

A BAA-MY sheep leapt onto a hospital’s “grass” covered eco-roof to graze and now a fence is to be built to keep livestock off it.
Ysbyty Alltwen, near Porthmadog, Gwynedd was built in 2009 to blend into the natural environment of south Snowdonia with local stone and an eco-friendly green roof, planted with sedum.
One daring ewe from nearby fields thought it looked so appetising it used a parked van as a stepping stone to leap onto the roof.
She would normally be thwarted by a gap of several feet between the Craig-y-Castell cliff face and the top of the building.

But when a contractor’s van parked up between the roof and the cliff the cunning sheep took its chance to test out the new greenery.
She initially climbed onto the van’s roof before leaping on the top of the hospital in Tremadog. The ewe was quickly spotted and she was safely removed after the incident last year.
