Police tweet for missing animals on golf course prompts jokes
People have been joking about arks after Cheshire Police tweeted an appeal to find a horse, two donkeys and a goat.
The animals strayed onto a golf course in Alderley Edge on Thursday morning at about 06:50 BST.
Responses to the tweet included: "Due to the floods Give Noah a call" and "I saw his ark passing through on Tuesday".
A spokesman said officers were unable to find the animals following a search.
The force said if they received any more calls about the animals, officers would return to the area.
