Sheeps In Wales Went 'Psychotic' After Accidentally Feeding On Cannabis Plant

A flock sheep reportedly went out of control in the idyllic Welsh village of Rhydypandy near Swansea after accidentally feeding on cannabis dumped on a crossroad from an illegal marijuana factory. Villagers from nearby Craig Cefn Parc complained that the stoned sheep appeared to have gone on a 'psychotic rampage' such as wandering aimlessly on the road as well as breaking into people's homes.

Swansea County councilor Ioan Richard first reported the incident of the said 'psychotic rampage' by out-of-control animals after locals reported unusual sightings of sheep wandering into the village and causing a whole lot of mess and all sorts of problems. He even mentioned about a particular instance where a stray sheep was accidentally run over on the road.

"There is already a flock of sheep roaming the village causing a nuisance. We could have an outbreak of psychotic sheep rampaging through the village," the councilor said as quoted by KGW.

"I told the council officers to make sure it was reported to the police before removing any evidence of what looks like the dumped remains of a cannabis growing establishment."

Councilor Richard has been leading a fight against frequent fly-tipping in his rural Swansea area in Wales. The latest environmental havoc that stoned an out-of-control stock was purportedly linked to the remains of a cannabis factory fly-tipped on the roadside above Salem Chapel near the picturesque Rhydypandy village. A spokesman for the Swansea Council stated that the local government has acted quickly to clean up the cannabis remains although it remains unconfirmed whether the sheep had actually fed on cannabis remains or not.

"The fly-tipped waste has now been removed, but we'd urge anyone with information about who may be responsible to contact either ourselves or South Wales Police. Fly-tipping has a negative impact on local communities, so we're doing all we can to both prevent it and clean up as quickly as possible at known hot spots," the spokesman said, Telegraph reported.

Meanwhile, US health regulators recently announced the latest medical breakthrough in treating opioid addiction. According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), people hooked on opioid drugs may soon have access to a Probuphine implant to fight their opioid dependence.

"Opioid dependence is a huge problem today, especially since opioids encompass not just illegal substances like heroin, but also legal pain killers, such as those prescribed after surgery," Inquisitr reported.

"Probuphine was designed to release small doses of buprenorphine - a medication used to combat addiction to opioids - for six months to reduce withdrawal symptoms."
