    My Aunt and Uncle on my mother's side still run the family farm in Western Massachusetts. Yesterday, they got a visit from the MSPCA to investigate a report of animal cruelty that had been lodge against them. The "offense" the sheep were left out over night with their guard Llama and the complainant thought is was cruel to leave them out in the cold all night. My aunt's response "for cripes sake, they're made out of wool!!" :lol::lol::lol: I know what she was trying to say, but it struck me as very funny. Of course MSpca found no basis for concern.

    Sheep are out all night, all through winter up here in Montana.

    Her neighbor needs to listen to some rock n' roll and have many sips of Maker's Mark.

    Your aunt gave one heck of an answer! Not much to say after that - is there!?
    I take it the complaining neighbour has moved from the city to the country quite recently ...

    Good for your aunt! Now for the complainant/neighbor and the MSPCA investigator...both sound like complete nut-jobs. Has government and bureaucracy lost all form of common sense? Sounds like a complete waste of time and tax payers money...but what else is new?

    I must have read a different post than you. I thought he said that they found no reason for concern. Sounds like they were doing their job exactly as they should have.

    The MSPCA guy didn't need to make a trip out there to check it out. It could have been handled on the phone, in 2 minutes.

    "What seems to be the problem, ma'am."
    "Those people are leaving their sheep out overnight, in the cold!"
    "Ma'am, take off the tinfoil hat, and get some rest."
