We were delighted to see Stephen Ebert’s tweet making the rounds last night, and judging by the thousands of retweets it got, we weren’t alone. So on that note, here are some of our other favourite animal-on-transport moments…

This chap was spotted in New Malden repeatedly trying to catch a bus with his sheep. But sadly, he wasn’t allowed:

Although no one is as as cheeky as this guy in Wales trying to take his horse on the train:
