CNN.com - Death call for Gulf sheep ship - Sep. 17, 2003: "Saudi authorities refused to accept the sheep because some of the animals were suffering from a low-grade infection known as scabby mouth disease. The percent of the shipment infected is disputed by Australia, which has since sought to find an alternative port for the sheep -- even offering the 50,000 sheep free to anyone in the region willing to take them. "
Just imagine. No one wants 50,000 scabby mouthed sheep. Go figure.
