A flock of sheep in Surrey, England were found going to town on thousands of pounds of cannabis, estimated at about $6,500 in street value, late last month. The sheep farm owner, incidentally named Nellie Budd, said the bags of three-foot-tall plants had been mysteriously dumped at the edge of her field. She thought it was “someone’s hedgerow rubbish,” before the “very strong scent” tipped her off.

Despite the enormous amount they ingested, the sheep didn’t seem stoned, said Budd: ”they haven’t had any other side effects.” But they may be on their way to becoming pot-infused edibles. Because she added: “I’ll tell you about the meat next week.”

Local law enforcement still haven’t tracked down the culprits who dumped the plants, but are reportedly “doing all we can” to find these “extremely irresponsible” individuals. In the mean time, those buying mutton chops next week in the Surrey area might be feeling a little wooly-brained after their meals.
