Senegal Sheep Beauty Show
In this Tuesday, Oct. 9, 2012 photo, sheep looks through a gate as breeder Ousmane Ndiaye, unseen, feeds his youngest sheep in a separate bowl in the sheltered rooftop pens he has specially constructed atop his home in the HLM neighborhood of Dakar, Senegal. In a nation where sheep are given names and kept inside homes as companion animals, the most popular show on television is "Khar Bii," or literally, "This Sheep" in the local Wolof language. It's an American Idol-style nationwide search for Senegal's most perfect specimen ahead of the Eid al-Adha festival, known locally as Tabaski.(AP Photo/Rebecca Blackwell)
