2,000 farting sheep cause plane to emergency land

A Singapore Airline flight carrying 2,000 sheep forced the airplane to emergency land because of "exhaust gas" caused from the sheep's manure.

A plane had to make an emergency landing because of 2,000 farting sheep.

The Singapore Airlines chartered flight had to stop after a smoke indicator was triggered in the cargo bay, according to a report by the Aviation Herald.

However, it's believed to have been an "exhaust gas" from the cattle's manure.

The aircraft was carrying the sheep from Sydney, Australia, to Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia.

Investigators didn't find a blaze and reportedly discovered "the smoke indication was the result of exhaust gases and manure produced by the sheep."

After two-and-a-half-hours on land, the plane departed to continue the long journey.
