Rescued Australian sheep freed from wool weighing 78 pounds

Baarack the sheep is seen before his thick wool was shorn in Lancefield, Victoria, Australia February 5, 2021. 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.

The sheep was found by a member of the public who contacted the Edgar's Mission Farm Sanctuary near Lancefield, Victoria, about 60 kilometers north of Melbourne, according to the Mission's Kyle Behrend.
