Shrek The Sheep, The owner of the most famous sheep in New Zealand hopes that his legacy will create further support for charities. Shrek the sheep was put down aged 16, the weekend after his health deteriorated. He rose to fame in 2004 after he was found in a cave in Central Otago, having avoided the shearing shed for six years and every time a 27kg fleece.
Was stripped live on television, including CNN, to raise money for charity and became a household name. “It was just a normal sheep, went absent without leave and hid, and when they found became the darling of the nation,” said John Perriam ONE TV rooms. “It was really a renegade and that came later through the years continued. “I had an incredible personality. He loved children and was very good with the elderly in nursing homes.” Shrek spent the last seven years in his own complex Bendigo Station is “probably the size of a lot of people’s homes.”
“It’s a little strange to leave this morning and he’s not here because she was eating in the morning and afternoon and the last three weeks had a permanent doctor,” said Perriam. The sheep developed a great interest from the media and with the help of corporate sponsors; Shrek was able to travel the world, scoring more air miles than most New Zealanders, Perriam said.
“It was a fantastic trip and we brought the world to give children with The Cure.
“Let’s go ahead. It was a family thing for us, which basically has completely changed the way we think about things and take part in a charity that gives a deep sense of satisfaction.”
A series of popular books for children with Shrek will help raise funds for the charity Cure Kids, which helps children with life threatening diseases.
Shrek is to be cremated and his ashes will be scattered at the summit of Mount Cook.
