Who needs a sheepdog when you’ve got a drone?

Farmers have nearly always relied on the skills of wise old sheepdogs when it comes to rounding up their flock.

But it seems that the role of a sheepdog could now be facing the unlikeliest of threats – a drone.

That’s if this video is anything to go by, which shows what happens when a drone is flown near a flock of sheep.

In the video, the drone essentially becomes a flying sheepdog as it manages to herd a flock of sheep through a gate and into a neighbouring field.

The drone, which has been nicknamed ‘Shep’, captured the footage on a farm in Carlow, South-East Ireland.
