A three-week-old lamb named 'Birke' has been rescued from a Munich brothel, having been discovered during a narcotics raid.

Police also detained a 25-year-old prostitute for drug possession, not prostitution, as it is legal in Germany.

Police said the woman showed them a letter from veterinary authorities which dictated the conditions in which the lamb should be raised, however these did not include its living conditions at the time, so she was forbidden to keep the lamb.

A statement from German police said: "The lamb was turned over to an animal protection group.

"During its short stay with police, the lamb felt comfortable and starting drinking from a bottle."

The police recovered from the brothel marijuana and other narcotics.
