An escaped sheep was found with 60 pounds of wool. Shrek the sheep ran away and hid in a cave in New Zealand for 6 years. When Shrek was finally found in 2004, the sheep had gone unsheared for so long that it had accumulated 60 pounds of wool on its body, enough to make 20 suits! The sheep became famous and even got to meet the Prime Minister. Shrek finally passed away last month at the age of 16.
Jim’s wife Linda says of her husband and the buffalo: “They have shared a bond since Bailey Junior was only a few weeks old when we adopted him after the tragic death of the first buffalo that Jim and I had raised. Bailey Sr had become a family member. I guess he became our baby. I know that sounds bizarre.” Picture: Sautner Family / Barcroft USA (via Pictures of the day: 9 November 2011 - Telegraph)
