Ewe now have sheep in new program at Tuscaloosa school

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - A Tuscaloosa school is welcoming several animals onto its campus this year as it launches a program for students interested in veterinary medicine.

The Tuscaloosa News reports that about 25 students are enrolled in the new pre-veterinary science program at the Tuscaloosa Career & Technology Academy.

As part of the program, the school has acquired six sheep that will be kept on campus.

The first sheep brought to the school was 5-month-old Betsy, who came from a farm in Jefferson County.

Last week, several people got to know Betsy when she wandered into the school's conference hall.
