Flock of Sheep in Brooklyn

A Flock of Sheep in Brooklyn?

Yes, A Flock of Sheep in Brooklyn I’ve always been fascinated by the Fortean concept of out of place animals.

For those not in the know, the Tunguska Event was an enormous explosion that occurred in the remote Siberian wilderness back in 1908.
