ISTANBUL: Hundreds of sheep followed their leader (a mixed up lamb) off a cliff in eastern Turkey, plunging to their deaths this week while shepherds looked on in dismay. Four hundred sheep fell 15 metres to their deaths in a ravine in Van province near Iran but broke the fall of another 1,100 animals who survived, newspaper reports said yesterday. Shepherds from Ikizler village neglected the flock while eating breakfast, leaving the sheep to roam free – trying to follow each other, the Radikal daily said. The loss to local farmers was estimated at $74,000.
