The Edgar's Mission Farm Sanctuary said the sheep, now named Baarack, was found living in the wild near Lancefield, Victoria, and rescuers believe he was on his own for several years.


The sanctuary said it appeared that Baarack once had an ear tag, but his overgrown fleece caused the tag to be torn out.


Baarack was given a shearing, his first in several years, and the removed wool weighed in at a staggering 78 pounds.


Rescuers said the fleece was so badly overgrown that it covered part of the sheep's face and severely limited his ability to see.


The sanctuary said Baarack now has a permanent home at the facility.

Officials said the three spiders were found in late January at the Shapiro Undergraduate Library University of Michigan in Ann Arbor and the arachnids were sent to Professor Ann Danielson-Francois from the University of Michigan-Dearborn for identification.


Danielson-Francois identified the specimens as Mediterranean recluse spiders, a species that commonly hitchhikes with travelers. The species has been found in 22 states, but Danielson-Francois said it was the first time she had identified any that were found in Michigan.


The expert said the spiders may have tunneled into the basement of the library.


The library was closed for cleaning Sunday and Monday after officials were informed of the identity of the spiders.


Danielson-Francois said the spiders are venomous, but would be unlikely to bite someone in an open space like a library.


"They don't have a huge amount of venom, but they have enough to start necrosis, which is the eating away of the flesh," she told WJBK-TV.

Australian family finds deadly snake swimming in backyard pool

A reptile specialist was called out to an Australian family's home when they discovered one of the world's most venomous snakes swimming in their backyard pool.

 

Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers 24/7 said in a Facebook post that a family in Palmwoods, Queensland, contacted the group when they went out to use their backyard pool and discovered the water was already occupied by an eastern brown snake, one of the most venomous species in the world.

The snake catcher who responded to the home said the snake likely fell into the water accidentally and was unable to climb out due to the pool's high walls.

The man was able to capture the snake safely when it attempted to flee into a pool vent.
