Meet the sheep that was carrying 40kg worth of wool on his back!

Meet Chris, he’s not a cloud, he’s very much a sheep.

Chris got lost from his herd of sheep a couple of years ago and ended up wondering around Canberra’s bush on his own.

With nobody around to shear Chris’ wool off every so often, his fleece managed to balloon into an epic size.

When Australia’s RSPCA finally got a hold of him, it took 4 people to carry him to the animal shelter.

Ian Elkins, 4 time national shearing champion, was the lucky person to cut off all of the wool from Chris, finally weighing a total of 40.45kg.

Chris is now under observation for a little while until the RSPCA can find him a new home, and herd to hang out with!
