Every year for the last five years Moffatt, a small town in Dumfries, Scotland, holds a sheep race through their town. 2017 will be their sixth year. Or, if we are successful, last year will be their last.
The sheep are raced through the town and people place bets on which one will win. Crowds line the streets and cheer and shout as they race by. Sheep are by nature timid and quiet animals. This must be a terrifying experience for them. Sheep are prey animals, which means they are sought, captured and eaten by a predator, so they will only run when they are frightened.
