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.

Missing common sense? How an the rest of the World believe your statements about nuke security when you can't manage a simple herd of sheep.
they mite have been sent to help the minister sleep (although if the minister can count past 10 is another debate altogether) ;)
If you need replacement sheep you can find lot's of them in the parliament in Islamabad.

It were the aliens, came down in weird UFOs and took away some sheep for genetic testing
Someone is having BBQ's day in and day out!
When honor, property, persons "unpatriotic" and the Law and Order is missing, no wonder that over two thousand Australian imported Sheep are missing, but there is one difference that these missing sheep must made someone or some people millionaire overnight. Hopefully these sheep been slaughtered in the name of God. Authorities must consider taking a Suo moto.
there is nothing wrong with most of the sheep but miraculously they will gradually disappear and be sold in the local market without paying the Australian exporter.
Bad to the bone we are. Yet we believe that one politician would descend from the top and would reform us all only in 90 days. Nobody can change us unless we decide to do it ourselves. Let us stop lying and deceiving ourselves.
LOL, sheep gone missing.
