On average, how many sheep do you think you see each week?


#1

i reckon i’m clocking in at about 6 a week?


#2

Absolutely none.


#3

what about cows?

i’m going to say 2 cows on average for me


#4

Also none. I live in Zone 2 of London.

Back when I lived in Kent I reckon I saw around 25 sheep a week and I once rescued one who’s head was stuck in a fence.


#5

On average? Zero sheeps, zero cows


#6

On average, over he course of a calendar year.

Modal: zero.
Mean: ~20


#7

Lots of both - a fair amount of cycling on the south downs = plenty of sheep and cows

They just kind of fade into the background after a while though. I don’t count them


#8

i also think i see about 2.5 horses a week


#9

Walk past a flock everytime I walk into town on the weekend,


#10

Average sheep is going to be slightly >0. I don’t see any routinely, but if I go on a trip somewhere, I’ll probably see some.

I see cows most days, there’s a couple of fields full of them about a mile from home (see below). Quite often a few of them are stood right at the edge of the field having a scratch on the barbed wire fence. I’ll say average cows is 15 a day.


#11

Fucking loads. Probably do a thousand most weeks no bother.


#12

None but when I go home to my parents who live in the middle of fields I see lots!


#13

1 or 2


#14

Zero

Bonus fact: wasn’t much higher when I lived in Wales.


#15

Sorry thought it said “bum”.

More than that.


#16

Hundreds whenever I go past a shopping centre!!!


#17

How do you go about doing that? I mean is it an easy thing or were you already versed in freeing sheep trapped like this. I’d be worried my presence might scare the sheep so much I couldn’t help it.


#18

mean: 5
mode: 0
median: 0


#19

Well it was actually the second time in my life that I’d saved a sheep (the one before was stuck in a ditch).

What I did was I slowly approached the sheep who’s head was stuck in the fence and pulled the fence apart to release the sheep and the sheep ran off and I continued my journey.
