Baa Baa Pink Sheep: New Zealand Nature Park Dyes Sheep Rosy New Shade

"Do ewe like this shade of pink?"

The lyrics to the classic children's nursery rhyme "Baa Baa Black Sheep" will have to be changed while visiting the Sheepworld Nature Park in Auckland, New Zealand, after animal tenders dyed the sheep's wool a bright shade of pink!

Park employees originally dyed the animals as part of breast cancer awareness week, but it proved to be such a hit with visitors that they decided to keep the wooly mammals pink. If you are concerned that the other sheep will be making fun or bullying the smaller, weaker sheep because of being dyed the flaming color, you needn't worry. Experts say that sheep are practically one hundred percent color blind, so there won't be any ostracized lambs standing alone on a New Zealand hill, being left out of all the sheep games. 

The park also assures everyone that they use only organic colorings in the dye and no harm comes to the sheep during the dying process.
