Did Ewe Know: Sheepish Laws & Happenings

Did Ewe Know?

You are allowed to herd 1999 sheep at a
time -- legally -- down Hollywood Boulevard
in California. Add one more sheep to the
flock and you'll break the law! 
Fact from http://www.insurancetrainers.org/PDF/California_Fun_Facts.pdf


In London, cab drivers (prior to 1976)
were required to carry a bale of hay to
feed horses, but sheep are given the Royal
Treatment
-- they're allowed to cross the
London Bridge without paying the toll.
Fact from: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/london/4527223.stm

In Japan, if you followed the flock in purchasing an inexpensive imported British or Australian Poodle, and it refuses to bark, won't fetch, and doesn't care for dog food, then there's a good chance you've had the wool pulled over your eyes -- you purchased a sheep!

And here in Connecticut, a local zoo was fleeced when a patron got in without paying admission; they're considering letting her off the hook by mowing the zoo's lawns.  The patron is a bandana wearing sheep found at the front gate.  The Beardsley Zoo is hoping Little Bo Peep will show up with an explaination.
