Ice-Covered Rams Recovered in North Iceland
February 22, 2013
Sheep that were lost in the snowstorm in September 2012 keep turning up. Farmer Daði Friðriksson in the rural Mývatn region in Northeast Iceland recently recovered two young rams with pieces of ice clinging to their wool in Gæsadalur Valley.
Daði told ruv.is that the lambs were skinny, especially one of them, but expected them to survive. He assumed that they had fed on withered grass.
There is still a thick snow-cover in the region yet Daði keeps looking for lost sheep, stating there is no use in giving up.
