Suicidal Sheep?

450 Sheep Jump to Their Deaths in Turkey

This is one of the crazier stories I've heard in a while. In Turkey, 1,500 sheep jumped of a cliff, killing 450 of them. Apparently the first one fell, or jumped, or whatever, and the rest followed! After a while, the fall was less deadly as the pile of sheep got bigger and bigger and provided more of a cushion for the sheep that followed later. Kind of a huge wool landing pad I guess.
I, for one, question the total number of sheep that jumped. I'm thinking the shepherds would have fallen asleep after counting the first few dozen. 1... 2.... 3.... 4.... Zzzzzzz....
Bah dum dum.
