Baarack was found wandering in the rugged Victorian bushland with more than 75 pounds of extra wool weighing him down.
He had been on the run for 5 years.
He was brought to Edgar's Mission, a safe haven for rescued farmed animals in Victoria, Australia, where he recieved a proper haircut.
About 77 pounds of fleece was shorn off him.

Due to human selective breeding for wool, sheep of today require at least annual shearing for their welfare.
"The wild mouflon, from whom Baarack and his kind have, throughout the ages, been selectively bred, did fine on their own — navigating rocky terrain, dodging predators and shedding their hair annually in harmony with the seasons. But not so today; they rely on humans for sustenance, shelter and shearing, and failure on any of these fronts oft times proves fatal for these animals."
