Protesting French farmers take sheep to Louvre

April 1, 2014

PARIS, France (RFD-TV) Sheep stormed the iconic Louvre Museum in Paris as farmers protested reforms to the European Union's policy on agriculture.

A dozen sheep ran into the museum entrance, baffling tourists.

Farmers were protesting the agricultural reforms, which France says will support jobs, produce and life on the farm.

The farmers say the new rules will increase the industrialization of agriculture in France, and will eventually result in the loss of farm jobs.

The farmers say they don't belong in a museum, but they do want to preserve the history of French farming.
