Lost sheep with 21 kg fleece is reunited with owner in Tasmania

Sheila the runaway sheep with overgrown wool was shorn by a Tasmanian farmer in Buckland on Monday, after he discovered the lost sheep on the side of the road last week. The farmer manages about 2,000 sheep at his farm, and believes that Sheila was one of his sheep that ran away years ago as she was found at the plantation next to his farm.
The sheep was sheared and its wool weighed at just over 21 kilograms, which fell short of the Australian fleece record, held by Chris the sheep, whose fleece weighed in at 41 kilograms last year.
