Rammy's rage through Helensville brought the semi-rural city to a stop, until the chocolate-colored ram was cornered in the library.
On September 18, around 8:30 am, nine months old, Rammy managed to escape from his lifestyle block and went to rob a ram in the city while his parents were away.
Unfortunately for Rammy, his morning pigeon ended after a pit stop in the Helensville Bakery.
Resident Ash Mills, 23, said Rammy was out of the blue and tried to get his partner's car after she dropped him off at the bakery to meet his colleagues.

"I started chasing the ram on foot while following my partner's car, my colleagues, Matt Curren, 23, and Carl Smith, 38, followed him in the car.
"We could see how the ram ran into cars and people when they were running over the road, so we chased him until we could turn him around."
The three men drove Rammy 800 meters up the Commercial Rd until they reached Helensville Library.
"People were pretty scared because he had a few big horns on him, it would certainly hurt if he had someone.
"It took us about five minutes to get around the corner and to distract him outside the library before Carl could pick up his horn."
Rammy had run away from Garfield Rd and was taken to Vets North by the men.
"Matt and I were pretty scared because we had never done anything like this before, but Carl was talking about it, so he talked us through it," Mills said.
Rammy's owner said the sheep had dashed under her fence without realizing it.
"I found out (he had escaped) after his work and seeing the post on the community page and picked him up at the vet."
Rammy & # 39; s mother thanked the three men for saving him.
"Thank you very much, we could never get him back without your help," she said.
Rammy was the only animal that had escaped from their home.
