A flock of sheep helped New Zealand police end a 90 minute pursuit near Central Otago Friday.
The sheep were being moved across a road by a farmer, forcing the stolen car to come to a halt.
Police say the chase began when they pulled a man over for not having number plates.
The car sped off and a high-speed chase ensued.
Road spikes were deployed and in fact deflated one of the car's tires- but it didn't stop the driver.
Three men and a woman were arrested...
No sheep were hurt in the incident.
