    Default Screaming Sheep!

    So it's a slow day in the office. One of our nurses was browsing YouTube for braying donkeys and ran across a few films on screaming sheep.

    A group of us gathered around the laptop to see what she was cracking up about and it revealed a rather placid looking sheep opening its mouth and emitting a loud SCREAM! Like a human SCREAM! We were howling.

    I'm something of a country girl, albeit without a lot of experience with sheep, but I had no clue they were capable of making such sounds. Was that for real??

    I'm still chuckling.

    Do you still hear the lambs screaming, Clarise?

    I'm lousy at posting links so I'm glad you made the effort arabhorse! Every once in a while I hear a SCREAM coming from the nurses station. We're dying here!

    They're not real, says my sheep expert friend. They're all edited. But very, very funny!

    The yelling sheep sounded real enough, although I could see the screaming ones being altered.

    I've had sheep and they can "yell"...but yeah, the screams are fake.

    Sheep may not scream, but they sure do yell loud for breakfast!

    Now, GOATS - those need no 'editing'. I bet our security department gets a couple calls a year from newly arrived docs about 'I hear a kid getting beat up' and it turns out to be a goat complaining about somethingorother!
