Sheep with 20kg woolly coat found in Tasmania

Two farmers in Tasmania have found a sheep they believe has been wandering wild for six years and never been shorn.

Peter and Netty Hazel discovered the animal, nicknamed Shaun, wandering on their farm and decided to take him in.

It is estimated that his coat weighs 20kg (44lbs).

The farmers say they plan on shearing Shaun to see if he can break the record for the most fleece-yielding animal.
