Workers sacked for simulated sheep sex Thursday Jan 3 12:00 AEDT By ninemsn staff Two British oil workers have been fired after they allegedly simulated sex with a sacrificial sheep in Algeria. The men were sacked for "sheep violation" in the town of Hassi Messaoud after they were spotted by restaurant workers and guards, British newspaper The Sun reported. The sheep were being slaughtered for 30 workers to celebrate the Muslim festival of Eid Al Adhha. "The individuals have been dismissed because their behaviour was totally unacceptable," a spokesman for US oil services provider Schlumberger said. A police spokesman told the newspaper that local Muslims viewed the sacrifice of sheep for the holy festival as "something very sacred". OKAY , Who dunnit?
