Farmer dyes orange sheep!

FARMER John Heard was sick of his sheep being rustled so he dyed them bright orange.

Mr Heard coloured his flock of 250 blackfaced ewes after losing 200 sheep to livestock thieves over the past few years.

The 48-year-old, of Okehampton, Devon, said: “My son James suggested the orange dye. It produces some strange-looking sheep but it’s totally harmless and it seems to have done the trick – I haven’t lost one this year.”
