Since Salty's thread about Fluffy was closed for some unknown reason, I'm forced to start a new thread to share the sad news about Shrek... New Zealanders were mourning the loss of the country's most famous sheep Tuesday, a shaggy national icon named Shrek who was renowned for avoiding being shorn for years. http://www.foxnews.com/world/2011/06/07/nz-mourns-death-shrek-famously-shaggy-sheep/?test=faces Seems Shrek lived quite a life, and had quite an impact: In a country where sheep outnumber people by nearly 10 to one, Shrek's story of stubbornness and guile appealed to many. After his capture, Shrek was shorn on live TV in a broadcast that was picked up around the world. His story inspired three books. "He was quite an elderly statesman," said owner John Perriam. "He taught us a lot." Until becoming sick three weeks ago, Shrek toured the country, commanding $16,000 for appearances and getting the star treatment wherever he went. In one appearance, Shrek was shorn atop a large iceberg that was floating near the South Island coast.
