The mystery of the dead sheep
by Colin Murphy  24 Apr 2015
Trudging head down towards the summit, I literally almost fell over a dead sheep. What was strange was the fact that it seemed to have died in the last few hours and I couldn't figure out how. Rigor mortis had set in (as evidenced by the sheep's stiffly and horizontally protruding legs and there was a fresh pool of blood under its head (inset, for the less squeamish of you!). There were no signs of a predator attack and it looked like it had fallen from a height, except that where it fell was a fairly gentle grassy/rocky slope, ruling out that possibility. Having pondered the mystery for a couple of minutes, I decided it was as well I never pursued crime detection as a career. The unfortunate beast's demise will have to remain a mystery for ever, unless some sleuth out there can suggest a possible cause! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/354/comment/17946/
