Lulu the sheep came to TIERART Wild Animal Sanctuary in September 2017. At that time, she was just 12 weeks old and thus still a bottle baby lamb. Previously, she lived in an apartment where her previous owner wanted to raise the lamb by hand, and keep her as a pet. However, the owner had no possibility to offer the little black Cameroon sheep a meadow or a stable in the long term and needed to find a way to accommodate it in a species-appropriate way.
Due to the lack of contact with conspecifics, Lulu was unaware that she was a sheep and followed the TIERART staff members at every turn. Any attempts to bring her to our flock of sheep Lulu strictly ignored – and still does until today.
Lulu's everyday life at TIERART
Lulu is no ordinary sheep. Anyone who has ever seen her live cannot escape her cheeky charm. She has her very own character and always makes us smile with her pranks - no matter if she eats up the complete new planting of our biotope pond within one night or if she is always in the first row at interviews...
Lulu is really unique in her whole behavior.
Sense of order
Spirit of adventure
- I come from: a private home in an apartment
- My favorite things to eat: everything I am not supposed to eat... for example, I like to eat newly planted trees or bamboo, the herbs in the herb garden at the office or the painstakingly planted pond plants.
- I am: an absolutely unique sheep, which always provides for entertainment
- This is what the keepers say about me: Lulu behaves more like a dog. She's always up to something, incredibly curious, and always and everywhere involved in something going on. She likes to play soccer or steal food from the golf cart for the raccoons and foxes.
