Weep for the Sheep

There's a sheep in Australia that had avoided being sheared for six years by hiding out in caves. It is a wild colonial sheep, a larrikin sheep, a sheep in the noble tradition of Ned Kelly. </p>

And now that the Man has finally caught the sheep he wants to make an exhibition of it by shearing it live on national television.

"Billy, they don't like you to be so free."
