A flock of sheep in England got an unexpected treat last month when they munched on thousands of dollars worth of marijuana dumped in their field.
The animals were happily stumbling about after eating seven bags of cannabis, with a reputed valued of £4,000 (about $6,300 American), reports Nicola Fifield at The Telegraph.
The flock reportedly found the marijuana stash at the edge of Fanny's Farm in Merstham, Surrey.
"My sheep, being inquisitive, had an interesting feast on it," said farm manager Nellie Budd. "They weren't quite on their backs with legs in the air, but they probably had the munchies.
"They haven't had any other side effects, but I'll tell you about the meat next week," Budd added.
"At first I thought it was someone's hedgerow rubbish," Budd said. "I went down to collect the bags so the sheep weren't eating black plastic.
"When I got there I realized it was a form of herbal cannabis plant," Budd said. "They were very strong in scent."
"I have no idea how they got there," Budd said, reports Harry Readhead at Metro.co.uk. "It’s right next to a road and the footpath is quite open."
