This video of Terry, the sheep with an upside down head, was first uploaded on YouTube last week and has generated a bit of a buzz, with many dubbing the video as fake.
According to Stuff New Zealand
, the sheep's case is as real as can be. The clip was originally uploaded by computer tech Allan McNamara, who supposedly spotted the animal on a friend's farm.
Mr. McNamara claims the sheep is healthy, and lives on an English farm.
"He lives happily and has been checked by a vet to ensure he is in no pain. [...] He can eat, sleep and do everything other sheep can," the man says.
He explains the upside down head issue is a consequence of an abnormal curvature in its spine. "Its spine is curved as far as I can tell. I don't think it's in any pain - it certainly seemed as normal and docile as sheep normally are,” Mr. McNamara proclaims.
