Sheep survives 11 days under 12ft snowdrift

3 posts in this topic

Stuart Mactier feared the worst as he searched for the bodies of sheep which had fallen victim to the recent blizzards that struck the family farm.

So when the agriculture student dug deep into a 12ft snowdrift, he was astounded to discover a heavily-pregnant ewe blinking back at him from under a huge pile of snow and dead sheep.

Despite being buried for up to 11 days, the four-year-old Scotch Mule cross appeared to be none the worse for her ordeal after being dug out on Monday evening and has since become an internet sensation.

The beauty of insulation... So all you need to ensure survival in an avalanche is a pile of sheep on top of you. I know what to bring next time I hit the slopes!

Boghouse farm - strange name...

Never go out into a blizzard without your wool suit on.
