These dang sheeps getting smarter and smarter.

And fluffier cause they don’t get sheared

Perhaps you should be on the lookout for some suspicious characters.


@konhacas, when are your sheep escaping? @yang put fixes into the game so animals say inside their zones, regardless of if they are fenced in or not. The only time they should be able to leave is if your shepherd fed the same animal in a different zone: they will go eat food in that zone and then return.
