LONDON (Reuters) - A Briton has been arrested on suspicion of carrying out a series of sex attacks on sheep, London police said on Friday.


The 27-year-old man was held at his home in Dulwich, south London, on suspicion of bestiality with sheep. He was also wanted in connection of the possession of drugs with intent to supply.

Detectives said the arrest followed allegations made to them in May and June.

"Two male joggers said they had observed a man molesting the sheep in a field at Botany Bay Lane, Chislehurst," police said in a statement.

"A similar incident was reported to police by a stables employee in the area."

Media reports said the man had been barred from visiting farmland while officers carried out their investigation.

You can't pull the wool over our eyes police said rather sheepishly; "It's proably just a bleeting romance" But the lamb remains silenced by the ordeal. After a thorough grilling by detectives it apears that some good shepherd chopped them without mincing around this was no ram raider but mutton dressed as lamb. The man made a clean breast of things adding he has enough on his plate already and had indeed been Baaaarred.

Oh sheepy, I told you never to take grass from stranger, at least not that sort of grass. I have some lanalin if you can't get enough from your fleece. It is very soothing.

I love the puns from newspapers but seldom read papers these days due to the high level of bad news. I for one don't want to wallow in negativity.

This story made me smile and reminded me of a similar story where people on a train reported a man for having sex with a goat. As they sailed on by one can only imagine how their mundane thoughts for the day got derailed by the silly billy acting the goat.

Hornswaggle - colloquial western American expression (in use way before any little amusement park gnome or the WWE ever existed) meaning to be deceived., having the wool pulled over your eyes, hood=winked, etc.

Obviously I am dealing with two poorly educated, illiterate creatures, one a bi-toothed wet-backed creature who can't keep his fir dry and the other a  floozie that fashions herself a chemist. This absurdity is amusing - and rather tragic.

American expressions aren't usually worth bothering about as they are no more than total nonsense. Although I have to admit I like "cockamamie" (sp?) as a word.

It is a fact, however, that these expressions are from the English and Scottish settlers who colonized the Appalachian area in the early 1800's - so blame the English if you believe total nonsense is the result. It is a fair site better than cursing like a British tar.
