Well, OK, some of the glamour and danger
From the Sydney Morning Herald:
A small New Zealand town reached for some of the glamour and danger of the Spanish bull-run city of Pamplona yesterday - by running 2,000 woolly sheep through the middle of town.
No one was chased, trampled or gored by the animals in the inaugural "Running of the Sheep". And instead of seeking cover, most spectators helped stop the shaggy mob from scurrying everywhere but the right direction.
...The sheep were supposed to do a quick circuit through the town centre.
But the 2,000 ewes lacked the instinct of Spanish bulls, as they split into puzzled groups and flocked in all directions.Posted by Brenden at April 4, 2004 12:20 PM
