Mr. Bailey said the confused animal failed to break the glass on his first two tries. His third landed him in the Bailey home, where he spent another three hours in a dazed state. The ram eventually left on his own through the broken window.

Authorities speculate the animal thought his reflection was a rival ram and decided to fight for any ewes that might be in the area.
