An undated handout photo obtained on September 2, 2015 from the RSPCA shows a giant woolly sheep on the outskirts of Canberra as Australian animal welfare officers put out an urgent appeal for shearers after finding the sheep with wool so overgrown its life was in danger. The very woolly merino sheep was spotted wandering on its own near Mulligan Flats, a grassy woodland just outside the capital Canberra, by bushwalkers who alerted local RSPCA officers.

About 1marylou

I enjoy the process of pushing the world of fiber to its limits with the use of knitting needles and various methods of experimentation. Along the way, the lens of my camera captures what I see.

    That poor sheep! I’m so glad he got some help–I saw a picture of him after shearing–I swear he looked relieved!
