Folks, I think you will at first glance think exactly what I did. Enjoy!
The woolly mystery known as the "sheep pig"
Not sure if my first thought is the same as yours....it was "Pigs in a Blanket".
My second thought was this:
In 168 B.C.E. or 169 B.C.E. Antiochus marched to Jerusalem, slew Jason (last of the Zadokite High Priests) and dedicated the Temple to Zeus, erecting an image of Zeus in his own likeness on the altar, and, according to some sources, sacrificed a pig in the Temple. This is known to Jews as the 'great desecration' or 'abomination of desecration' (from Daniel 11: 31 & 12: 11)
Perhaps it was a sheep-pig, looking enough like a sheep to be smuggled in to the Temple with a bag on it's head.
this could easily be abused to make a terrible disease.
It's worrying that these things are allowed to happen so easily without a say from the people.
