Mysterious sheep drive town potty
Kojonup is in the midst of one of the biggest mysteries to ever beset the Great Southern region and it has been driving residents bahhking mad trying to figure out who is responsible.
At the start of September porcelain sheep started appearing out of the blue near Kojonup’s big wool wagon and no one seems to know who the culprit is.
There are now about a dozen sheep, a lamb and a fox.
Kojonup shire president Ronnie Fleay is among those left scratching her head at the ewe-beaut’ phenomenon.
“It tends to happen overnight, you will come in the next day and there you go, you have a green sheep, or a maybe black sheep, even a lamb,” she said.
“We are a little concerned with the fox that has arrived but we haven’t seen any real damage yet.”
Ms Fleay said she believed Rotary Club members were the prime suspects.
Suspect Jo Sexton was coy on any involvement by herself or Rotary Club members.
“A lamb was put in the garden on Friday and by Tuesday I was expecting it gone, but it had a little mate,” she said.
“I have heard there are quite a few people who have participated in dropping these little lambs off. I think people do tend to move them around a little.
“Maybe the fox has been chasing them around the stump.”
