Shrek the sheep ran away and hid in a cave in New Zealand for 6 years. When he was finally found in 2004, he had gone unsheared for so long that he'd accumulated 60 pounds of wool on his body- enough to make 20 suits!
Meet Shrek, he is a Merino Sheep and one of New Zealand’s most beloved icons. He was found wandering the wilderness on his own so debilitated by his overgrown coat because his fleece hadn’t been sheared in 6 years! He was caught in 2004 and they removed 60 pounds of fleece from him.
Shrek was a Merino sheep, a castrated male, belonging to South Island, New Zealand, who gained international fame in 2004 owing to his gigantic coat of fleece. Shrek became famous after escaping his enclosure and evading the shearers for six years by hiding in caves. Merino sheep are usually shorn annually but Shrek managed to escape the blade for six years straight. When he was finally caught, the sheep was unrecognizable.
Shrek the sheep. Shrek, the New Zealand merino sheep which spent 6 years on the run from his owners, finally had his long-postponed encounter with a pair of shears. I can't look at these photos without laughing. What a champ!
