A couple of rare sights in Iowa make News 4 Today crew laugh


We've shown you a camel on the loose, a zebra and pony making a break for it, and now this rare sight a little closer to home!  A ram led police on a wild chase through Des Moines, Iowa.  Officers tried corralling the animal with their cars but, as you can see, it just kept running!  The animal's joy run ended at the Capitol, though, after being tackled by officers.  Officers say the ram belongs to a local homeowner, who was keeping it for a friend.  Police say they cited the homeowner for having an animal at large.

And here's another sight that will catch your eye in Iowa.  A few bales made into a show-stopping Christmas display.  This bear in Sac County weighs more than six tons.  Mark Hosteng says the bales are usually stored behind the barn, but with the help of his kids, he was able to create this teddy bear.  The display towers taller than a semi truck.  Hosteng says the bear will stay up until Christmas, or his cattle get hungry.
