Sheep as Celebrities

From Otago, New Zealand:

“Shepherds found the merino sheep now known as Shrek wandering the high country after six years of evading the autumn muster. An open day at Bendigo Station on Sunday was the first opportunity for the public to meet the celebrity sheep. The Shrek theme park sprang up overnight, with enterprising locals making the most of their newfound attraction. The area is temporarily boasting helicopter rides to the caves Shrek hid in during his years lost in the wilderness, ‘catch the greasy pig’ competitions and displays of farm workers’ strength.”

The Daily Telegraph took up the story:

“The woolly creature was shorn of his 15-inch long, 59lb fleece during a live television broadcast.”

Next week on New Zealand TV: “Watching the Paint Dry.”
