Are sheep really to blame for all of the grass in North Africa being eaten up?


therefore causing the Sahara desert to form?

I heard this on the history channel one time, but I can't find any proof of it.

Sounds reasonable due to I just found out that sheep are one of the few animals that can't do anything for themselves and that without a shepard they won't even move or go anywhere.

All they do is graze away it is said that they are one of the few animals that can't even find water by themselves.
