High On A Hill Lives A (Very) Lonely Goatherd
Swiss police are investigating after a flock of 90 sheep vanished from a remote Alpine pasture - for the second time. It is the second time in a year that the flock has vanished, leaving no traces of their whereabouts. After the first time, farmer Silvano Bacciarini, from the Magadino plain in Tessin, had to buy new stock. A baffled police spokesman admitted: "The only way to the pasture is by a remote track - the sheep were not driven away as there was no foot prints, nor was a lorry driven to the meadow. Yet we searched by helicopter and there is no sign of the animals anywhere."
