Plague sheep are non-player characters, specifically, sheep inflicted with the "plague" of West Ardougne. They are the subject of the Sheep Herder quest, wherein the player must herd them into an enclosure with a cattle prod, poison them, and burn the plagued sheep remains in the cattle furnace.


  • 1st plague sheep - Just southeast from the enclosure.
  • 2nd plague sheep - Directly next to the first group.
  • 3rd plague sheep - Northwest of the enclosure.
  • 4th plague sheep - South of Elena's house in East Ardougne.
