Perry High School gets donated sheep

Posted: Updated:

PERRY, Ga. (AP) - Nine donated sheep are now living at Perry High School after they did not work out as weed eaters for a local company.

WMAZ-TV reports that Guardian Centers bought goats and sheep to eat weeds and grass on its 375-acre property.

The pygmy goats worked well. But not the sheep. Company official Tim Maloney said the sheep got in the way of disaster training exercises and left waste where it did not belong.

The firm eventually donated the sheep to Perry High School. Agriculture teacher Phil Gentry said the animals will be a learning opportunity for students.
