YOU MAY BE ASKING YOURSELF: WHY IS THERE A SHEEP IN THIS PERSON'S CAR TRUNK?

A STORE IN ISRAEL IS OFFERING AN UNUSUAL DEAL- BUY A TV, GET A SHEEP.

ACTUALLY, FOR ANY APPLIANCE COSTING ONE-THOUSAND SHEKELS OR MORE- A FREE SHEEP.

ISRAEL'S "CHANNEL TWO," SHOWED CUSTOMERS TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THE PROMOTION, TAKING AWAY APPLIANCES AND SHEEP TO THEIR CARS.

THE PROMOTION WAS APPARENTLY TARGETING ISRAEL'S ARAB POPULATION.

SLAUGHTERING SHEEP IS PART OF THE MUSLIM HOLIDAY OF EID AL-ADHA, THE FEAST OF SACRIFICE.

UNFORTUNATELY FOR ALL CONCERNED, EXCEPT THE SHEEP, THE SALE DIDN'T LAST LONG.

AFTER SEVERAL HOURS, THE CITY'S CHIEF VETERINARY SURGEON SHOWED UP AND SHUT DOWN THE PROMOTION AND TOOK THE SHEEP OFF TO A SHELTER.

HERE'S A FACT: THE WORD "QUASAR" IS PRONOUNCED "QUASAR" IN HEBREW.
