Sheep get jobs at Museum

THE Natural History Museum has introduced sheep into its wildlife garden to manage grass and undergrowth, reports The Guardian.

The newspaper reports that the Royal Parks Agency is considering the introduction of sheep grazing for wildflower meadows in Bushey Park, south London.

The Corporation of London already runs grazing schemes using sheep, cattle and pigs on common land on the capitals outskirts and at Burnham Beeches in Berkshire.
