Who is Baarack the Lost Sheep?
Earlier this year, a rogue merino sheep made headlines when he was found roaming bushland in Victoria in desperate need of sheering.
Affectionately named Baarack, he was shorn of his 35kg fleece to save his life and went on to worldwide fame. Baarack, was once owned and had somehow escaped from his farm. Merino sheep don't shed their fleece and need to be shorn at least once a year as their fleece continues to grow. While Baarack's fleece was impressive in size, it's still several kilograms off the world record of 41.1 kilograms.
Baarack the Lost Sheep's fleece will be on display at the Museum from 12 June.
