Are you a lover of animals? As a sheep farmer, how would you feel if your precious flock was constantly being stolen by thieves? Feeling frustrated, 50-year-old Pip Simpson from Cumbria, England had to find a way to protect his sheep in a unique way. Over the past four years, 300 of his herd had been taken away. In hopes of finding them more easily, Simpson decided to spray his entire herd in bright orange! The farmer said, “The only solution was to make them completely different to everybody else’s. They are literally luminous orange.”
Thankfully, Simpson only used non-toxic dye on his fluffy sheep. With over 800 livestock painted in the bright color, it seems to have worked perfectly to deter thieves! When it comes to protecting his treasured herd, Simpson took matters into his own hands. Sometimes, we just have to be a little creative.
