I took a story starter from ThinkQuest.org.
Goats, sheep and chickens belong on the farm, not in the middle of a four-lane interstate road. Applying the brake, I eased my truck to the shoulder. As I stepped out, the animals began to scatter. I knew it would be pointless to chase them, as they would only run farther, so I stopped to think. Glancing into the truck bed, my eye fell on the bag of dog food I had purchased in town. Tearing open the top, I grabbed a handful and tossed it toward the goats, hoping against hope that they would be interested.
They started to skitter away, but then their curiosity got the best of them and they stepped over to see what I had thrown. It appeared they were hungry, as one by one they tried the morsels and found them pleasantly edible. Soon the sheep and chickens had also shouldered their way in.
Tossing another handful, I slowly advanced on the group, and managed to get close enough to find a tag on one of the sheep. I grabbed my cell phone and dialed the nearest farmer’s co-op, hoping they would be able to help me find the farmer from whom these animals had escaped.
