London, April 13 (ANI): It has emerged that two escaped convicts managed to dodge a huge manhunt after they disguised themselves as sheep.

The pair dressed in full sheepskin fleeces, complete with heads, to lie low among farm flocks.

Robbers Maximiliano Pereyra, 25, and Ariel Diaz, 28, stole the sheep hides from a ranch after breaking out of an Argentinean maximum-security prison a week ago.

And they have managed to evade the 300 cops on their trail - despite locals seeing them running through fields at night.

"They were wearing grey clothes but had full sheepskins, including the sheep's heads, over their heads and backs," the Sun quoted a farm worker at La Almeda as saying.

Police say spotting the pair among thousands of sheep is "almost impossible".

But one warned: "They can't pull the wool over our eyes forever." (ANI)
