Overgrown sheep’s life is saved after 40kg of wool is removed

Overgrown sheep’s life is saved after 40kg of wool is removed


Meet Chris, the sheep who has broken a world
record. Chris set an unofficial world record after
having a hair cut from five shearers. Welfare crews warned he was at risk of dying
because it was so woolly from living in the wild for
several years. Dwarfed by the woolliest sheep in the world, even the Kangaroos look a little scared. At four to five times his normal size, the RSPCA say it’s the heaviest wool haul
from one shearing. National sheering champion Ian Elkins was
urgently called to the rescue on Wednesday. He said he had never seen anything like it,
in his 35 years of work. Chris had to be sedated before more than 40
kilograms of wool was removed. And then after his clean, Chris’s record breaking
wool is weighed. As if he knew he was posing for the camera
– the Australian sheep showed of his new, lighter
look – complete with pink antiseptic stains
