Sheep fix

Share post:

WILL Shane “Stiffy” Atkinson’s sheep be on stage at Bacchanal Time Calypso Tent tonight?
Also left to be seen is if Stiffy will marry the sheep as his tent manager Eric Lewis announced.
And if he does, will the police intervene and arrest him for cruelty to the animal?
These questions remained unanswered yesterday as members of the tent prepared to face the Pic-O-De-Crop and Party Monarch judges at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre tonight.
The sheep is brought on stage when Stiffy renders I Carr My Sheep To Town, one of the most popular calypsos for the 2011 Crop Over season.
Wayne Norville, chief inspector of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA), has threatened legal action against the calypso tent, but Lewis has retorted: “It will be hell oh hell in Barbados if anyone comes after me for taking it (the sheep) on stage.”
Since Norville’s warning on Wednesday others have come out in support and are saying the sheep should not be on stage.
Full story in today’s SATURDAY SUN.
