A giant sheep found with a massive overgrown fleece after she wandered off a farm has had her first trim in six years, says the Mail.

The ewe – dubbed ‘Sheila the sheep’ – was found on the side of a dirt road in Tasmania last week, yielding more than 20 kilograms of wool as she struggled to get back on her feet.

Her fleece weighed in at 21.79 kilograms but she failed to break the world record, set by Chris the Australian sheep in September 2015, who holds the most wool sheared from a sheep in a single shearing at 41.10 kilograms.
