Australian Sheep Drops 89 Pounds’ Worth Of Wool

People can count on sheep for one thing above all else: their wool. It’s a key reason why they’re a fixture of farms the world over — but while they’re a valuable resource, harvesting their wool is also a service to them. If they aren’t properly taken care of, then we may see animals like Chris the sheep. Said sheep just recently lost enough wool to make thirty sweaters by itself.

As funny as it might be to imagine a sheep with that much wool, Chris was at risk of carrying any number of infections — and beyond that, it stumbled through the wilderness of Canberra, Australia, for years while effectively blind. Thankfully, residents spotted it; shortly after, Chris got a much-needed haircut from a national shearing champion. Given how much the sheep ended up shedding, it’s likely no one else would have been up to the challenge.

The good news is that Chris is doing well despite the weight it once carried; he can move and eat without much trouble, though he’s still being watched over for now. Hopefully, he’ll never have to go through that again.
