We know sheep can solve mazes, learn to roll across cattle grids and remember faces well. Now they have shown a level of intelligence that has never been ‘…demonstrated in any large animal, apart from primates’.
Wonder what would happen if we started ‘smart competitions‘ for sheep at local shows, and bred for that ability.
The burning question though is: When are scientists going to search for intelligence in Westminster?
Then again, researchers do pick the most promising subjects first…
