An escaped sheep was found with 60 pounds of wool.
Shrek the sheep ran away and hid in a cave in New Zealand for 6 years. When Shrek was finally found in 2004, the sheep had gone unsheared for so long that it had accumulated 60 pounds of wool on its body, enough to make 20 suits! The sheep became famous and even got to meet the Prime Minister. Shrek finally passed away last month at the age of 16.
It’s sad that the description is missing the part about how sheep would naturally shed their wool if humans hadn’t bred them to retain it, so those 60 pounds were entirely human doing. Fuck wool.
you know whats funny is a lot of us shave our pets or at least trim their fur especially in summer months and no one bats an eye but OH NO IF YOU USE THAT FUR FOR YOUR OWN GAIN YOURE A MURDERER
Most people are unfamiliar with the way the wool industry works and it appears you’re one of them. Sheep, as I said above, were selectively bred by humans to retain their wool instead of shedding it, so that humans could use it. This is unnatural, unlike dogs naturally growing and then shedding their fur.
Humans have made it so sheep need to be sheered. We have made them dependent on us. They can get heatstroke and die if they are not sheared.
And yes, the wool industry does also contribute to the death of sheep. When sheep age, their wool changes quality. It’s the sheep equivalent of how human hair grays. There is no market for the wool of old sheep, so they are then sent to slaughter and eaten by humans.
So, again, there is a huge difference between domesticated dogs and cats and sheep used for their wool. The wool industry is unnatural, exploitative, and results in the death of the sheep.
OMG DUMBASS DO YOU NOT KNOW WHAT THE CIRCLE OF LIVE IS!!! SO HOW DO U survive ?? I surpose you don’t eat meat or eggs, or drink milk and u must wear 100% cotton. So u must be against people who have their pets hair made into a blanket so they hair something of their pet. Since not all pets live as long as people do!!!
