    A sheep which evaded humans for six years in New Zealand's Central Otago Mountains has been shorn in front of a live television audience.

    According to Sky Shrek's fleece weighed in at 27.5kg and was removed by former world champion sheep shearer Peter Casserley.

    Mr Casserley used an old-fashioned pair of cutting blades to remove the fleece, described as "rock hard" in places.

    Shrek looked a little disorientated when the shearing was over, but seemed to adjust to his new shape quickly.
