Hundreds of sheep have been painted with a bizarre 'smiley face' symbol in fields across the country.

The strange image has sparked debate on social networking sites after it was first reported on 20 animals in a field in Melton Mowbray, in Leicestershire.

There have since been sightings in a further five fields across the UK, including Perthshire in Scotland, and 500 miles south in Exeter, Devon.

From the article:

Quote

Many are questioning how the eerie symbol came to be etched on the animals - with some talking of 'supernatural powers' and 'UFOs'.


Why are people so stupid? You can see the lines at the sides from where a stencil was used.


Edit: Commenters on the DM site have show this to just be an advertisement for Alton Towers.

I always have an image of a smiley being a face within a yellow circle.
It was used to officially represent the rave scene and un-officially acid tabs.
But when I clicked on that I saw a crude attempt done on some sheep's backside with a Sharpie pen.
Not exactly the level of sophistication and technology I was expecting from the aliens.
If they had drawn what I thought was a smiley it would be a virtual flyer to an illegal rave.
Alas it was only Alton Towers.
