The Honey Badger was the knight in shining armour – or a least some footy shorts and a slightly ripped singlet – for a sheep that got tangled in a fence.

Ex-Bachelor and retired Wallabies winger Nick Cummins spotted the struggling sheep while driving and quickly sprung into action.

Honey Badger cheekily captioned the vid as: ‘In NZ, this would have gone down very differently.’

The comments were mainly concerned that the sheep was plonked back into the correct paddock.
