Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Shepherd in protective clothing dips sheep using formaldehyde pesticide. The animals are being submerged in a bath of the pesticide to kill parasites and other vermin which live in the sheeps' woollen fleece. The animals are often fully immersed twice before they are allowed out. Care must be taken when using formaldehyde because exposure to it is thought to cause cancer. Photographed during research conducted by the Health and Safety Laboratory in Britain.

Release details: Model release available. Property release not required.
