Sheep outsmart Britons
The BBC reports that in Yorkshire, crafty sheep conquer cattle grids:
Hungry sheep on the Yorkshire moors have taught themselves to roll 8ft (3m) across hoof-proof metal cattle grids – and raid villagers’ valley gardens.
A National Farmers’ Union spokeswoman in York said: “We have never seen anything like it. We have looked at ways of improving the situation but it is very difficult. The grids are substantial bits of kit.”
If these were Boston sheep, they’d be lucky to be alive after pulling a stunt like that.
