Solved: Branded sheep in Exeter part of Alton Towers PR stunt
The branded sheep spotted in Exeter that left many flocking to social media using the hashtag #creepysheep was part of a PR stunt by Alton Towers.
The theme park managed to pull the wool over the eyes of many newspapers including the Daily Mail and The Sun.
Showing shear determination the organisers painted identical faces, featuring black eyes connected to a grinning mouth on sheep across the United Kingdom.
One farmer described the markings as ‘crop circles – but on sheep’ and some asked the question if aliens were behind the markings.
