The sheep are watching you, and they probably know who you are, according to science. But it gets worse, they know who our celebrities are.
Researchers at Cambridge University have found that sheep are able to recognize the faces of famous people. They trained eight sheep to recognize the faced of former President Barack Obama, actor Jake Gyllenhaal, actress Emma Watson, and some British journalist you’ve never heard of. They then held up pictures of two faces, and wouldn’t you know, the sheep were able to correctly identify which one was the celebrity.
This means they have facial recognition abilities similar to our own. And they never seem to blink.
