Grasslands in Hulun Buir have been flooded by heavy rains, stranding more than a thousand sheep on Sunday.

Border police rushed to the scene to rescue sheep after receiving an emergency call.

Police jumped into the raging water to pull the trapped sheep out one by one. The trapped sheep were moved to a safe place after a 10-hour rescue.

As torrential rains battered the city of Hulun Buir, the municipal government issued an emergency response order for flooding and evacuated affected residents.
