Shepherds Who Bit Off Lambs' Testicles at Special Farming Event Hit by Violent 'food

Two shepherds who bit off lambs' testicles as part of a special farming event were hit by a violent food poisoning bug.

The stomach-churning case was documented by the Wyoming Department of Health after it investigated the mini-outbreak of Campylobacter jejuni enteritis.

The pair, who had taken part in an event in which 1,600 lambs were to be castrated over several days, ended up with punishing vomiting and diarrhea, stomach cramps and fever. One of the men was affected worse than the other and spent a night in hospital.
When doctors tried to establish how the two men came to be infected with the same rare and severe bug, they ran through a long list of possibilities.

Neither men had eaten poultry or unpasteurised dairy products, which are common sources of the virus, and they did not live together or share food or water. No-one they knew became ill either.

Lab tests of the virus revealed both men were suffering from exactly the same particularly rare strain of the virus, never before recorded in the state of Wyoming, so the investigation turned to the places the men had been together.

It was later revealed that of the 12 shepherds who took part in the sheep 'docking' event, in which the tail's are also removed and the animals' ears marked, only two had used their teeth to castrate the sheep - the two men who fell ill.
It transpired that a few lambs that were castrated had diarrhea, which infected them via their mouths on contact with the sheep's testicles.

Participants in the castration event were advised by the organisers to use specific techniques, and to wash their hands thoroughly afterwards.

However, the pair instead used a different technique and suffered because of it.

The bizarre biological case, highlighted by science writer Maryn McKenna on her blog, is by no means the first case of shepherds castrating lams with their teeth and, while not widespread, the practise is relatively commonplace.

It was even featured on the U.S. TV show Dirty Jobs, where them amazingly game host Mike Rowe even had a go at it himself.

As the ranchers in the video below explain they use the mouth method to get a better grip on the 'slippery' testicles as they are removed.

yeah that shepard or whatever (the nutsucker) looks like he's probably a few human nuts in his day.
Would a tool be so hard to make to do this? Really?
