The news of the death of celebrity New Zealand Merino Sheep ‘Shrek ‘ caught my eye this week.

Shrek became a celebrity when he evaded the shearers for six year by hiding in caves.  To see a little film about him on the BBC click here.

He was finally caught by shearers and lost his giant 27kg (60lb) fleece in a televised shearing.  That would make a lot of felt!!
