This is a picture of a baby lamb that I took recently. Its mother was acting a bit crazy and kept crying so I didn’t stay around long. Sheep and lambs are really cute and look cuddly but they can get quite nasty if they have to, to protect each other and their young.

I was about a foot away from this baby when I took the picture and my father was not far away, he said to be careful and not touch it as it could imprint on me (not like Twilight I’m sorry to say, this type of imprinting would mean the lamb would think I was its mother), plus if I was to touch it the scent would have changed and the mother might have abandoned it.

This article is obviously to show off a wild baby lamb up close but also to give some information that if you do see one then as much as it seems like a nice idea to pick them up and cuddle them don’t unless you're at a petting zoo or are told you can... if it’s in the middle of a field then please don’t as the baby lamb could be abandoned because of you simply stroking it.

You should especially avoid touching lambs while eating Polos. The mint sauce induced panic is terrifying.

This was really interesting but at the same time upsetting! I've always wanted to pet a sheep! :/

Got something to say?
