Greek Sheep Sing, ‘Everybody Must Get Stoned’

This comes right out of Tales of the Bizarre: Earlier today (Monday) in Greece, a flock of nefarious ovines (sheep) got into a medical marijuana greenhouse and, before they were apprehended, managed to eat roughly 600 pounds of the wacky tobacky.

A flock of sheep found their way into a greenhouse in Greece and ate more than 600 pounds of marijuana plants being cultivated for medical use.

Yiannis Bourounis, owner of the greenhouse in Magnesia, said his crop had already been damaged by heat and recent floods when a flock of sheep managed to enter the greenhouse and feast on the remaining cannabis plants.

Ewe have to wonder what drove the sheep to this pass. Clearly, the owner of the greenhouse has been fleeced; but it’s unclear whether the thieves have offered any recompense, or if they will just be sheepskates about the whole thing. The long-term effect on the animals, if any, has yet to be determined, but we can hope all’s wool that ends wool.

(Yiannis Bourounis) estimated the sheep munched their way through more than 600 pounds of plants.

Bourounis told that the sheep were “jumping higher than goats” after eating their ill-begotten greenery.

Given that goats are notorious for their jumping ability, this is certainly impressive. Prior to this, there was no record of how the Jolly Green affected athletic performance in sheep, although some work has been done on the use of sheep in aviation. The sheep participating in that study were advised to fill out their last wool and testament before participating, which really speaks volumes of the likelihood of success.
