KARACHI: As the Sindh High Court stayed the culling of possibly-infected sheep imported from Australia, a few thousand sheep have begun to disappear from the farm they were being kept in, reported Express News on Tuesday.

The sheep were counted on Tuesday as per a Sindh High Court order and were stated to be 11,306 in number. On the other hand, a government official had claimed on Monday that the number of sheep culled stands at 7,667.

If exactly 21,000 sheep were imported, then according to the released figures, around 2,027 sheep are missing.

The farm owner claims that the farm has been in the custody of the government ever since the idea emerged that the sheep were infected with anthrax. The government though has rejected claims of possessing custody of the farm.

The culling of the sheep is currently stayed till September 27 when the Sindh High Court will next hear the case. The expert team formed by the court to assess the sheep had declared the herd free of any disease.
