Farting Sheep Cause Plane to Make Emergency Landing


A plane had to make an emergency landing because of a smoke indication in the cargo bay, but it wasn't due to a fire -- it was because of sheep.

According to the Aviation Herald, a Singapore Airlines flight had to make an unscheduled landing in Denpasar when the cockpit noticed a smoke warning. The aircraft was transporting more than two thousand sheep from Sydney to Kuala Lampur.

The plane landed safely and investigators found nothing on fire. They determined that "the smoke indication was the result of exhaust gases and manure produced by the sheep."

The sheep-filled plane spent two and a half hours on the ground before it continued on to its final destination.

It's unclear what is going to happen to these sheep in Malaysia, but we can only hope their new owner gives them better food.
