Kimiko’s story is very painful. We only know that very kind and responsible animal control officers responded immediately to complaints about the abuse of this ewe, and acted promptly to take her immediately for medical care.
Her abuse was prolonged and vicious, and she was so emaciated, dehydrated, and wounded when she arrived at the veterinary hospital, they did not know if she would live.
However, this little sheep who weighs no more than 80 pounds has made an amazing comeback. She is still in rehabilitation, but we have every confidence that this noble creature (Kimiko means noble) will integrate with our flock very soon and be able to have a happy and normal life.
