This all creatures animal exploitation photo gallery about Sheep and Lambs is being presented to show the public the difference between the cute animals we see in advertising and picture in our minds and the reality that exists in the world.
(Sheep and Lambs - Wool-02) Merino sheep, who have an exceptionally high quality fleece, also get folds in their skin in which blowflies like to lay their eggs. Instead of providing proper care and compassion, these unscrupulous farmers (ranchers) tie the lambs down and cut these folds out of a fully conscious animal, as a so-called "preventive" measure for eliminating "flystrike". This "procedure" is called mulesing.
