Meet Baarack, A Wild Sheep With About 78 Pounds Of Wool On Him

Baarack is a wild sheep found in a forest in Australia, he had about 78 pounds (35 kilos) of wool on him. It is said that he was not shorn for about 5 years. He was found by someone who then contacted Edgar’s Mission Farm Sanctuary in Victoria. Kyle Behrend from the Farm then took care of him.

“It would appear Baarack was once an owned sheep,” said Behrend, “he had at one time been ear-tagged, however, these appear to have been torn out by the thick matted fleece around his face. “Sheep need to be shorn at least annually otherwise the fleece continues to grow and grow, as happened here,” said Behrend. “Whilst his hooves were in great condition from running over the rocks in the forest, he was in a bit of a bad way. He was underweight, and due to all of the wool around his face he could barely see.”
