Are we being fleeced with this story?

A moving nose is all this sheep can do on video? A few still images? No real magic numbers here.

A lost, overgrown sheep found in Australian scrubland was shorn for perhaps the first time on Thursday, yielding 40 kilograms (89 pounds) of wool — the equivalent of 30 sweaters — and shedding almost half his body weight.

    When i was done laughing i had to wonder what the wool would be used for.
    Maybe some limited edition designer piece of clothing

    But ..
    Most articles i found via a quick google search all said :
    ‘Elkins said the fleece was too long to be sold commercially. He hoped it would end up in a museum.’

    So we can (hope to) see this wool in a museum soon?

    -edit-
    better pic?

    Also could this be something bigger?
    Like a runwaway sheep. Got lost from, or broke away , from the heard.
    And now it needs ‘treatment’ (shaving) and it can move freely again.
    Message can be : do not stray from the heard, you will become totally strange and in need of treatment.

    The video (0m58s) appears to show a skinned sheepskin, rather than a shorn fleece. Yet Chris, the sheep, apparently survived his de-wooling. Hmm..
