Looks like someone tried to pull the wool over her eyes. Poor little lamb.

"The wild and ailing sheep found in a forest in Australia, named Baarack by rescuers, has yielded a fleece nearly half the weight of an adult kangaroo after being shorn for the first time in many a year"

Weight of an adult kangaroo is a unit of measurement in Australia, apparently...

Yeah, they used the wrong unit. The wool actually weighs 2.29 metric emus.

Years back, one in NZ had escaped shearing for half a dozen years; Shrek had hidden out in the mountains and had become so overgrown he could barely move. He looked like a gigantic dirty cauliflower.  Ed Hillary hosted the shearing and they auctioned off the wool for charity.

How do/did sheep deal with this in the wild? Just die when their wool became to much to bear?
Are what we know as sheep now evolved to the point that they simply cannot live without humans to maintain them?

Sheep used to shed their wool naturally until humans started selectively breeding them.

They ride kangaroos like we have cars. They have a good sense of how much they weigh.
