In Need Of A Haircut


A sheep which evaded humans for six years in New Zealand's Central Otago Mountains has been shorn in front of a live television audience.

Shrek's fleece weighed in at 27.5kg and was removed by former world champion sheep shearer Peter Casserley.

Mr Casserley used an old-fashioned pair of cutting blades to remove the fleece, described as "rock hard" in places.

Shrek looked a little disorientated when the shearing was over, but seemed to adjust to his new shape quickly. [Source: Ananova]

Update: The BBC has a picture of the sheep after it's trim.
