The Continuing Problem of Dogs Worrying Sheep

notice at Caistor St Edmund, Norfolk, UK

I love signs and notices like this – the more official-looking, the better. Luckily for me, here in Norfolk they abound.

Now, should you come across any particularly worried sheep in future, you will know the number to call.

Personally, I have always found sheep to be fairly easily worried – they run, bleating hysterically, in all directions as soon as you appear over the fence with even a small jar of mint sauce, as though you were accompanied by the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Which, of course, you are not.

Presumably this propensity to worry is why they are spared the trauma of taking exams or giving PowerPoint presentations.

Though why dogs should be the scape-goats in this instance, I do not know.

I’m feeling a bit silly today.

    to worry cows:

    1. observe target cow posse from a distance
    2. identify possible sneaky route to gain increased proximity to cows
    3. sneak via sneaky route (walls very handy, hedges ok) to location close enough to see cows eyes
    4. take deep breath
    5. leap up from behind sneaky hiding spot and go ‘BOO’
    6. wave arms in air
    7. observe cows spring up in surprise; eyes widening included
    8. titter

    that could almost be 10 things i would have liked to have done today…

    LOL, I can see it all…

    except that you would probably have snuck up to find them all standing around smoking and discussing politics and post-feminism.

    Cows are pretty sneaky, too.
