Sheep in Greece Munch on Medical Cannabis Amidst Flood Havoc
Unexpected Cannabis Consumers Amidst Catastrophic Storm
In a peculiar turn of events, a flock of sheep in Greece devoured a whopping 272 kilograms of medical cannabis. As they sought refuge from the devastating floods caused by the ‘Daniel’ storm, the sheep found themselves in a greenhouse. This storm, fuelled by global warming, triggered extreme weather conditions across regions of Greece, Bulgaria, and Turkey.
The greenhouse, unbeknownst to the sheep, was a legally sanctioned space for the cultivation of medical cannabis. The sheep, finding an abundance of ‘green leaves,’ consumed the cannabis, totalling an impressive 272 kilograms.
Triple Whammy for the Greenhouse Owner
The owner of the greenhouse was left dumbfounded at this unexpected disaster. Prior to the ‘sheep incident,’ the greenhouse had already suffered a significant decrease in yield due to a heatwave. The subsequent floods also wreaked havoc on the crops. The last straw was the unexpected consumption of the remaining cannabis by the sheep, which left the owner speechless.
The farm owner, Yannis Bourounis, humorously commented that the sheep were ‘jumping higher than goats’ after consuming the cannabis, an occurrence that had never been witnessed before.
The Unforeseen Challenges of Climate Change
This unusual incident underscores the unpredictable challenges that can arise due to extreme weather events, particularly in the context of legal cannabis cultivation. It also underlines the potential for unforeseen behaviors of wildlife, which can have significant impacts on human activities.
The event also highlights the broader implications of climate change, which can lead to unforeseen consequences and require adaptive responses. The extreme weather events caused by global warming not only lead to natural disasters but can also result in unexpected situations like the ‘sheep disaster’.
Call for Protective Measures in Cannabis Cultivation
In light of these events, there is a clear need for protective measures to prevent such incidents in the future. This is especially relevant for the cultivation of cannabis, which can be attractive to wildlife. These measures could include secure fencing, wildlife deterrents, and heightened surveillance to keep a check on the greenhouse premises.
Conclusion: A Climate Change Wake-Up Call?
While the incident might seem humorous, it serves as a stark reminder of the unpredictable challenges that can arise due to climate change and extreme weather events. It also underscores the need for protective measures to prevent similar incidents in the future, especially for industries like cannabis cultivation. As global warming continues to fuel extreme weather events, it is crucial for society to adapt and prepare for such unexpected scenarios.
