Sonny Wool - New Zealand’s first psychic sheep

There are currently 40 million sheep in New Zealand, but only one has come forward to show he has psychic ability.

Introducing to the world New Zealand’s own psychic sheep “Sonny Wool”.

Sonny Wool, a three year old Sheep born in Dannevirke, currently calls home Manakau near Levin but for the next 6 weeks of the World Cup, Sonny will be based in Wellington.

Sonny Wool was recognised as having special abilities as a young lamb.
Dan Boyd, Star Sheep Agent says, “Sonny Wool could predict when it was going to rain, and tap on the door to get inside”.

He has been described as showing the same sort of autism traits as humans, and shows his emotions through his psychic abilities. Sadly Sonny Wools sister Maggie is blind, after his mother was affected by a condition while pregnant with the two sheep, and this has said to have helped Sonny strengthen his ability.

Sonny Wool has a fetish for lights at night, an obsession with rugby balls and is an avid All Black supporter, making the next 6 weeks very exciting for the sheep. He will be using his psychic ability to predict the outcome of All Black games in the Rugby World Cup starting on Friday night.

Sonny Wool’s way of communication will be via his feed with corresponding flags attached and which ever feed he decides to eat first will be Sonny’s prediction for the corresponding game.

While Sonny Wool as you can imagine will be extremely busy with public engagements during the World Cup, he will make himself available for comments via his agents contact details below.

Sonny Wool will make his first prediction in public tomorrow morning, and promises photo opportunities will be available at:

Wolburn Eldercare Rest Home
57 Wai-iti Crescent, Woburn, Lower Hutt
Friday 9th September 9:30am

Anzac Issue Out Now: Werewolf 47

Hi and welcome to the 47th edition of Werewolf, published on the eve of Anzac Day. Its become a cliché to describe Gallipolli as the crucible of this country’s identity, yet hold on... Isn’t our national identity supposed to be bi-cultural... and wouldn’t that suggest that the New Zealand Wars of the 19th century is a more important crucible of national identity than those fought on foreign soil?

Yet as Alison McCulloch eloquently reveals in this month’s cover story, New Zealand devotes a mere fraction of its attention span and funding resources to commemorating the New Zealand Wars compared to what it devotes to the two world wars, Vietnam and Afghanistan... More>>
