A sheep that was lost in the Tasmanian wilderness got its first haircut in 6 years

Sheila the sheep had been lost in the Tasmanian wilderness since 2010, before she was rescued and shorn of her overgrown fleece on Monday.

The farmer who found her on the side of a road believes she wandered off six years ago. After she was rescued, she enjoyed her first haircut in more than a half a decade. Video showing what she looked like before and after losing the 45-pound fleece shows she’s a whole new sheep.
