An overgrown sheep who got lost 6 years ago finally got a much-needed hair removal.

Shiela, the sheep, got lost in a dense forest near Hobart in Tasmania, Australia. She was rescued by a local, called Peter Jones. He found her stuck on the side of a road, unable to move because of the amount of wool on its fleece.

With wool weighing over 21 kilograms, she came second in the Australian fleece record. Over 20 kilograms less than Australian fleece record holder, Chris, whose fleece weighed over 41 kilograms.
