160 Sheep Stolen From Town Called - Wait For It - Wool

LONDON -- LONDON (AP) Wool's wool is missing.

Police in southwest England appealed for help Tuesday in tracking down thieves who made off with 160 sheep from a field near the village of Wool.

Police say the sheep were stolen between Saturday and Monday, and that the thieves would have needed a large vehicle to move the woolly haul.

Constable Adam Taylor says all of the sheep were electronically tagged.

1. The words lamb chop and mutton were not used, but this won't end well. Sigh.

2. Those electronic tags emit a signal which can be detected by receivers as an audible hum. Hence

the name they're commonly called: baa hum bugs.
