The RSPCA has rescued a sheep from a hair-raising adventure in Tasmania.
Cecil the sheep was found on a rugged cliff-face before rescuers managed to get to him.
But once the sheep was saved the RSPCA had another job on their hands, with Cecil in dire need of a haircut.
“I was a bit worried that he might die of fright actually,” one of the shearers said.
“Because it (being shaved) was such a big trauma for him.”
It’s believed the woolly coat was too heavy for the sheep.
