Border Collie Draped in Wool Confuses Sheep in Hilarious Viral Video

You may know the phrase "a wolf in sheep's clothing," but have you heard about the border collie that dressed up as a sheep?

Well, footage that has recently gone viral on TikTok, with more than 1.7 million views, shows just that.

In the clip, which was shared on the social media site by a woman called Lucy Jones, known online as Lucyj84, you can see a sheep dog draped in wool surrounded by sheep inside a barn.

The video, which can be watched here, is made all the more hilarious by the fact that the dog is blinking, as if perplexed, as the sheep stare at the imposter intently.

The flock then starts creeping toward the dog, but the sheep stop as soon as he turns his head to look at them.

The background music to the footage is an audio clip from the TV show Bad Girls Club, with one person heard saying: "Nobody's gonna know. Nobody's gonna know."

To this, a second person responds: "They're gonna know," and the first voice replies: "How would they know?"

Jones has captioned the video with the hashtags: "#fyp #collie #sheep #farming."

Since the footage was posted on November 28 it has gained lots of traction online with more than 142,500 likes.

Additionally, nearly 5,000 people have taken to the comments section to air their opinions on the funny clip.

One TikTok user, Rayhackett, wrote: "I think he's embarrassed, he's looking to see if they've noticed yet! They're whispering don't look at him!"

Another person, User8709501277424, joked: "A wolf, disguised as a dog in sheep's clothing."

Cam Shelton typed: "The silence of the lambs."

Louesta Moonie-Rober stated: "Sheep think the new guy looks hella sus," alongside a string of laughing-face emojis.

C observed: "Even the sheep are confused."

Antonio admitted: "I like how he is still making sure that they are in check. Lol [laugh out loud]."

Ron_TikTok_21 commented: "You are not going to pull the wool over my eyes."

Huytongirl remarked: "People will be flocking to like this video."

Recently a video of The Bachelor star Nick Cummins rescuing a sheep trapped in some wire went viral on Instagram.

In the footage, the Australian television personality and former professional rugby player can be seen saving the animal, after he saw it entangled in a fence while driving past.

The clip, which was posted to the sportsman's Instagram account, shows him coming to the sheep's aid by untangling it and lifting the heavy animal up by the legs and throwing it over into a field.
