‘UNI­CORN’ SAVED?

Fortean Times - - STRANGE DAYS -

A sin­gle-horned ram found in Ice­land was saved from the slaugh­ter­house last Oc­to­ber. Ein­hyrningur (Ice­landic for ‘uni­corn’) was found in April 2017 among Erla Porey Olafs­dot­tir’s flock with his horns fused into one, and be­come an In­ter­net sen­sa­tion. As the Ice­land Mon­i­tor re­ported, Ein­hyrningur was des­tined for the slaugh­ter­house. Reyk­javik Zoo of­fered to take him, but Ice­land’s strict an­i­mal move­ment rules meant he couldn’t go there, and his sale op­tions were limited. How­ever, the an­i­mal’s fu­ture seems a lit­tle brighter with the news that he was to be auc­tioned for lo­cal char­i­ties in Novem­ber. No fur­ther news of his fate has reached Fortean Tow­ers.
